Fair and Legal Employment during the Covid Crisis: Weekly Q&As with Gapsquare & Osborne Clarke

What’s new?

We know that, at the moment, everything is changing very quickly and it can be hard to keep up – with the news, with the government’s changing restrictions, and with knowing what steps to take next.

So we‘re holding weekly discussions with employment lawyers in the UK at our partner firm, Osborne Clarke, to try and help you navigate the coming months as an employer. 

Each week, Osborne Clarke will catch up with Gapsquare CEO Dr. Zara Nanu about the latest developments in employment law, to advise you on what steps to take now, and to let you know what you can expect to see going forward.

Episode 8: 15th April

With non-essential shops in the UK resuming business today, and in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, there’s a lot to talk about in this week’s Q&A with Osborne Clarke.

In Episode 8, we cover:

  • Employment updates – changes to furlough, and employers taking advantage of the scheme
  • Redundancies and the risk of unfair dismissal
  • The ‘productivity gap’
  • Supporting BAME employees at work, and thinking about health & safety for those at higher risk
