It’s April and… well what can we say? It is the most bizarre and unsettling of times, and you won’t be surprised that our headline news has to be the effect of Coronavirus on employment and HR, even if you are, by now, probably rather tired of hearing about it!
We look at its impact on the workplace and how best to solve some of the more vexing problems that it has brought with it. We also realise that life will continue as normal for those in HR (even if you’re hopefully working from home by now) and so we update you on the recent introduction of the parental bereavement leave regulations and other April legal changes, plus the postponement of the IR35 reforms for the private sector.
In a departure from our usual approach, in this month’s Newsletter we are only covering one reported case this month, to try to keep the length down given the (over-) load of information on handling Coronavirus issues. However, we’ll be sure to catch up on anything you may have missed in next month’s newsletter.
