Show notes

Keeping up to date with UK employment law is a must for many HR professionals. The events of the last couple of years have seen many organisations race to catch up with the new norms of flexible or hybrid working, toying with issues such as mandatory vaccinations and whether employees who are based at home and no longer visible, are actually being productive! Put it this way, the situation has certainly kept employment lawyers busy!

In this episode you ‘ll discover:

What organisations need to consider when encouraging workers back to the office;

Some of the legal trends that have emerged since workers have been based from home;

The thorny issue of whether organisations can mandate vaccinations for their employees;

The 2022 employment law landscape including a law to prevent sexual harassment and changing the law surrounding flexible working making it the default position from day 1;

Nick’s opinion on the various employment law private member’s bills in circulation including Lord Hendy’s Status of Workers bill and Barry Gardiner MP ban the fire and rehire bill;

The evergreen issue surrounding social media posts and how these can end up with employees in very hot water.
