The specialists will consider common and practical queries arising from the employment relationship, including in relation to: promotion, bonus, home working and flexible working arrangements. Jessica and Lauren will also discuss restrictive covenants and how they might impact employees when they leave or move jobs.

Learning outcomes:

  • The importance of your contract of employment, legal issues, and being familiar with your rights and obligations.
  • What you can and cannot do when you leave employment, if you have restrictive covenants.
  • Your rights in respect of changes to your contract following COVID-19.
