Returning to the workplace following a global pandemic can be a scary prospect, especially when there are so many different guidelines and obligations to navigate as an employer.

JMW’s employment team joined us for a Q&A webinar to get you answers to anything you needed clarity on.

They gave the latest update on the status of the Government’s Job Retention Scheme, then we opened up the floor to your questions on areas including:

– The un-furloughing process
– Creating a Covid-secure workplace
– The legal process for redundancies
– Your rights as an employee
