Tackling the evolution of the workplace post-COVID: challenges for employers

Few can deny the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had and is having on the way people work since the global escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020

As many countries around the world experience a reduction in COVID-19 infections and attempt to reopen their economies, companies both large and small are faced with the daunting challenges of conducting business in a post-pandemic world.

Although these challenges vary from country to country, COVID-19 has changed the way we work and do business. The only questions are: will the pandemic's impact be permanent and if so what will be the long-term fallout? Will remote working, widely employed during restrictions, become the norm in the future? Or will employees gradually return to onsite offices, factories and warehouses? A team of employment-law experts attempt to answer these questions in this publication. Discover all available formats below.
