The panic and fear created by the coronavirus pandemic and the unprecedented steps taken by the Government to combat the problem, have created numerous challenges for employers and employees alike. Terms such as social distancing and furlough leave which were unheard of a few weeks ago, have already become part of the daily vocabulary for Employment Law and HR specialists.
Although Government launched schemes, such as the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), the Coronavirus Business Interruption Scheme (CBILS) and grant aids for business rates, are intended to mitigate against the disastrous impact covid-19 is having on the economy, failure to adhere to existing legal principles, will potentially give rise to significant litigation in the weeks and months ahead.
Our experienced Employment/HR specialists can provide advice and guidance to business owners and employees regarding the recent legal changes made as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
For employers wanting Employment Law/HR advice relating to coronavirus, or employees wanting clarification of their employment rights, we are offering up to one-hour’s remote consultation with a member of our Employment Law/HR team, for a fixed price of £250 plus vat, subject to terms and conditions.
