4 February: Thinking ahead: 2021 HR Update

As the economy strives to function against the backdrop of uncertainty caused by Covid-19. The unexpected lockdown of the economy in March affected every type of business from essential services having to adapt to Covid-19 protocols, employers were required to lay off and reduce the hours of employees, while office workers moved to remote working.
  • Top queries received by the SFA and HR trends and practices arising from the Covid-19 pandemic and other matters such as: remote work, managing absence, employment permits and income supports.
  • Employer’s obligations under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 should be attained during this pandemic. They should “ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety health and welfare at work of his or her employees”. (i.e., lead worker representative, risk assessment, and communications)
  • Top employment cases from 2020. Learning points and takeaway actions to put into practice are set out.
