Canberra is now facing an unprecedented situation where businesses are required to scale back and temporarily close due to government directions and social distancing – and with little control over being able to change this for the immediate future.

While employers try to keep their businesses going while looking after staff as much as possible, issues such as working remotely, requiring staff to take leave and standing staff down are serious considerations.

Please join us on Wednesday 1 April 2020 for a free webinar to discuss some of the pressing questions facing businesses from an employment law perspective, including:

  • Can I make my staff take leave?
  • What are my options for employees if the government directs my business to close or change the way we operate?
  • What are my obligations if I have to let employees go?
  • Can I ask staff to work from home?

Date: Wednesday 1 April 2020

Time: 10:30 am – 11:15 am

Register through Eventbrite here.

We want this webinar to be as relevant to you as possible, so if you have a specific question or concern, please list up to 3 questions/concerns in the comments box during registration and we will endeavour to address as many of them as possible.

This webinar will be presented by Emily Shoemark, Senior Associate and employment law specialist at Snedden Hall & Gallop.
