Managing Employment Law Challenges in the Age of Coronavirus
The unfortunate reality of significant business disruption, during downturns and possible shutdowns caused by Coronavirus, is that you may be required to significantly change internal staff resources and to end the assignments of on-hire employees. There are many options to consider, along with many legal risks.
This complimentary webinar, delivered by workplace law advisers FCB Group will consider the options, the associated law and the traps that need to be avoided.
Join Amanda Curatore from FCB as she provides answers to the following questions and more:
- Can I ask permanently employed staff to reduce hours of work?
- Can I direct permanently employed staff to take annual leave or unpaid leave to avoid redundancy?
- What do I need to consider when approaching redundancies during a significant business downturn?
- Can I stand down permanent employees and how do I manage this?
- Am I obliged to continue to pay an on-hire casual employee when a client closes down their site or introduces mandatory isolation?
- How should we respond to requests to convert to permanent employment by on-hire casual employees when business is so uncertain?
- If we choose to pay an on-hire casual employee during self-quarantine, do we need to be careful of setting a precedent?
This is a webinar to attend, regardless of whether you are being forced to consider these options now or not.
This webinar will include a Q&A.
