Diary Date - November 19 and 25: Free business webinar on flexible and home-working

Key topics of our time - from redundancy to Brexit and post-pandemic working practices – continue to be covered in a series of free webinars for employers.  

Legal experts at Gloucestershire-based Willans LLP solicitors is the firm sharing its valuable expertise and practical tips.  

On October 20 the firm’s Legal 500 and Chambers-rated employment law team covered off ‘Redundancy and the alternatives – a snapshot for employers’, then on November 12 it tackled ‘Brexit and the end of free movement – how businesses can prepare’. 

The remaining two webinars will take an in-depth dive into flexible working and how your organisation can adapt and prepare, and examine the employment law considerations of homeworking – the risks, special considerations and key administrative changes that will need to be made.  

Willans partner and webinar host Matthew Clayton, named a ‘leading individual’ in the region for his employment law expertise in The Legal 500, said: “In 2020 most employers (and indeed employment lawyers) have found themselves in uncharted territory; businesses and their advisors have had to work together to interpret and put into practice a whole host of changes, and do so very quickly.  

“We now find ourselves exploring with our clients what the longer-term consequences of the pandemic are going to be for them, and how they need to adapt. The webinar series is designed to unpack, debate and shine a light on some of those issues.”  

Mr Clayton will be supported by employment law senior associate Jenny Hawrot, described as a ‘rising star’ in independent directory The Legal 500, and commercial and employment law solicitor Helen Howes, who brings in-depth knowledge of business immigration law.  

All webinars in the series are free and are aimed at employers, directors, senior executives, HR professionals and in-house legal advisors.
