The Covid-19 virus outbreak has created an unprecedented disruption on a global scale across the entire business community. This disruption raises a number of significant legal challenges for companies regardless of their sector or size. In its efforts to help Luxembourg companies tackle the disruptive effect of Covid-19, the Luxembourg government has taken numerous emergency measures: special family leave, state-backed partial unemployment, possibility to increase working duration, interruption of parental leave, etc.
During this webinar, Maurice will focus on the following three situations:
· You are still able to pursue your activities more or less normally: can you still ask your employees to work in your premises? what are the points of attention when working remotely?
· You are suffering from a reduction of your activities: what tools are at your disposal to manage your workforce? how to minimize the financial impact?
· You may face several HR issues as an indirect consequence of the pandemic: how to plan the employee’s ordinary holidays? how to sign HR documents while working remotely? how to communicate with staff representatives?
Duration: 30 minutes
