Autumn Report 2020

  • Posted

In just over a week, I am presenting the Employment Law Autumn Report 2020.

Here's what it covers...

Topic 1: Rishi Sunak's Job Support Scheme

- which employers and employees qualify?
- what are the rules of the scheme?
- how does it differ from the furlough scheme?
- what happens if there is not enough work for the employee?
- what if the employee cannot work due to ill health (including Covid)?

Topic 2:  More Coronavirus Stuff

- the job retention bonus
- the new criminal offence of allowing your self-isolating workers to come to work
- the litigator's sledgehammer: interim relief

Topic 3:  Health & Safety Detriments / Dismissals in the time of Coronavirus

- sections 44 and 100 of the Employment Rights Act 1996
- what is meant by 'serious' and 'imminent' danger to health?
- is commuting to work covered?
- are employees entitled to be paid if staying at home under s44?
- how employers should deal with employees who refuse to come into work - the practical answer

Topic 4:  Three Big Caselaw Developments from the last three months

- Constructive dismissal (Phoenix Academy Trust v Kilroy)
- Personality clash dismissals (Gallacher v Abellio Scotrail)
- Changing contract terms after a TUPE transfer (Fergusen v Astrea Asset Management)

Registration costs £45+VAT per person (free to members of the HR Inner Circle), and each delegate will receive a bespoke .pdf workbook, access to the live webinar, and an 'on demand' recording afterwards.  It's taking place on 20 October 2020 at 10am, and will last about two hours.
