Managing your workforce out of lockdown webinar: Varying employment contracts - what you need to know

Darren Newman

Employers continue to face tough decisions about how to protect their business. As well as contemplating redundancies, many employers are considering a whole range of contractual variations including transferring employees to different roles, reducing hours and cutting pay.

At the same time, employees who have found a way of working that suits them better as a result of lockdown want to embody those changes in their employment contract, whether that be working from home or working flexible hours that suit family life.

In this webinar, employment lawyer Darren Newman guides us through the process of varying an employee's terms and conditions including the procedure for dismissing and re-engaging an employee, and how to deal with an avalanche of flexible working requests from employees who want to make their lockdown way of working permanent. Darren also discusses the issues around the phasing out of furlough and the reintegration of furloughed employees into the workforce.

This one-hour live webinar includes a Q&A session.
