We have witnessed an abundance of employment issues in 2020 from employee safety concerns, sick leave policies, social distancing, and healthcare and benefit plans, to further issues surrounding employment contracts, furloughing, recruitment challenges, privacy, biometric data collection and the disclosure of employees infected with the virus. It has certainly been a tumulus year from employment law. In this session, we will examine the key challenges of 2020 and best practice to approaching and resolving these challenges and disputes, whilst also take a look at 2021 and how the regulation needs to change to improve employee welfare in the future.
