Contracts & Handbooks | Recommended Protections, Remote Working Considerations & Regulatory Updates

As we emerge from the pandemic, many employers are taking the opportunity to review and update their contracts and handbooks to better protect them from future unforeseen circumstances, bring them in line with new ways of working, and ensure they encompass the regulatory changes brought into place in April 2020.

Watch our free webinar to discover the key protective clauses your employment contracts may be missing, whether employee handbooks are really necessary, and what changes to terms or policies you may need to introduce when rolling out hybrid or remote working. Plus get a recap on the Good Work Plan changes.
