Varying Contractual Terms and Policies in the Time of Covid-19 and a Post-Covid-19 World Webinar

02.06.20

In this webinar, ‘Varying Contractual Terms and Policies in the Time of Covid-19 and a Post Covid-19 World’, Carol Davis and Joseph Bryan consider how weeks of lockdown and an uncertain future is transforming businesses and requiring employers and employees to confront the reality of multiple and wide-ranging changes to the workplace and to employees’ contracts of employment.

Carol and Joseph explored the challenges in varying contractual terms and policies as a result of Covid-19. In particular, they focused on the following:

What might need to be varied?

  •        Pay and remuneration: the effect of furlough and ‘voluntary’ reductions
  •        Changes to contractual and non-contractual policies: absence/sickness/home-working/conduct
  •        The extent to which variations change/develop depending on changes in social distancing

How to vary terms?

  •       Consultation/collective consultation
  •       Unilateral changes
  •       The impact of and on trust and confidence

What are the legal and business consequences?

  •       Discrimination: direct and indirect
  •       Trust and confidence issues in the post-Covid-19 world
