With employers the world over having to manage the impact of Covid-19 on their workforces, what can UK employment lawyers learn from the experiences of jurisdictions ahead of the UK in their journey back to the ‘new normal’?  A panel of employment experts covering the US, Europe, Nordics and Asia will discuss the range of approaches and measures adopted by overseas governments and share their perspectives on returning employees to work and what the future of the workplace may look like.  Topics for discussion will include:

  • What measures other jurisdictions have put in place to protect jobs (and have they worked?)
  • Challenges and practical tips on managing returning employees to work
  • Managing health and safety risks and balancing obligations, including data protection, to employees. How are other countries dealing with temperature testing?
  • What lasting impact will the pandemic have on new ways of working
