Overview

Covid-19 pandemic has caused significant unpredictability and upheaval for companies and their HR teams. The pandemic placed flexible work arrangements, especially remote work, in the spotlight. With many states issuing stay-at-home orders and allowing only essential businesses to keep their physical locations open, unprepared employers were forced to implement flexible work options on the fly.

With more and more vaccines being approved, it has no doubt provided the economy a significant dose of optimism, a step closer to return to normality. Currently, governments are taking the primary role in vaccine deployment however companies will need to prepare themselves for any legal implications as new information emerges. Organizations will need to have the right strategies for business operations as vaccination plans roll out nationally without breaking the law.

Risk Management on Workplace Flexibility and Vaccination Regulation for Employers Virtual Masterclass will bring together industry legal experts to address these pressing issues to enable organisations to navigate and overcome legal challenges affecting HR practitioners.
