Free business webinars to cover redundancy, Brexit or post-pandemic working practices

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

Legal experts at Gloucestershire-based Willans LLP solicitors will be the ones sharing their valuable expertise and practical tips. 

First up in the series, Redundancy and the alternatives – a snapshot for employers, is due to be held on Tuesday, October 20, from 10am to 11am. 

The firm’s Legal 500 and Chambers-rated employment law team will talk you through the big questions around redundancy - ‘What is it? When to use it? What are the alternatives, and what are the key steps in the redundancy process. 

Appeals, flexible working and home working will all be covered in the discussion. 

On Thursday, November 12, ‘Brexit and the end of free movement – how businesses can preparewill cover what Willans calls the big changes, the legal framework, and the practical actions businesses can undertake now to 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. 

Partner and webinar host Matthew Clayton, who this month has been 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 ably supported by employment law senior associate Jenny Hawrot, this month has been named a ‘rising star’ in independent directory The Legal 500,and commercial & 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.
