Employment & Immigration law group | 13.00-17.00 CET

As we all know, Covid-19 has had a very profound impact on the workplace, where we work, how we work, our use of technology and, sadly, has led to significant job losses despite various Government schemes to try and limit the impact of the pandemic. Sharing experiences:

  • How Covid-19 has impacted the workplace in our respective countries (e.g. the impact on mental health, redundancies, flexible working)
  • Whether we think working practices have      changed for ever (what is the role of the office in the future, use of technology etc)
  • How our clients and Governments have responded to the challenges – what has been effective? What has not?
  • Has labour law in our countries changed in response to the pandemic – are those changes temporary.
