In the first of our series of podcasts, Emma O’Connor from the Employment Group at Boyes Turner LLP, looks at how can employers support its business and staff during these “unprecedented” times? Emma, looks at advice not just from government departments but also from ACAS as well as focusing on issues and advice the Group are giving to their own clients. The key themes of the discussion are around being vigilant, prepared as well as flexible (as we can be), in these ever changing times. The podcast is recorded based on advice as at 17 March 2020 (at 3.00pm). Whilst every business is different and each situation will require its own advice or steps to be taken, there are some practical steps each employer can take to support both their people and business.
