Now Live – Employment Law During the COVID-19 Crisis

Join Hatti Suvari and employment specialist barrister James Tunley, in this informative discussion on Employment Law during the COVID-19 Crisis. In this special additional episode to our line-up, we discuss whether your employer can make up the financial difference in your salary between what the government may pay out in furlough as a maximum and what your normal take-home pay would be, if your employer has to give you time off of work if you sign up as a volunteer on the front-line in the NHS and under what circumstances your employer can request that you take this time off as part of your annual leave during lock-down. The discussion also extends in to whether or not a director of a limited company is considered an employee of the business, and whether as a director you can claim furlough or not. A fantastically informative conversion that will give you bags of free information.
