HR Power Lunch

​There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has been challenging for HR. As we look forward to a new “normal”, employers are facing difficult questions. Join employment law guru, Neena Gupta, Partner, Gowling WLG and Amy Davies, First 30, for a fast-paced Q&A session on return to work.

  • Can organizations compel their employees back to the office?
  • What if employees refuse to come back to the office?
  • Can our employees insist on working from a beach in Costa Rica?
  • How can we monitor home-based employees?
  • Can employers require employees to be vaccinated?
  • Can employers require negative test results prior to a return to work?
  • What is the role of Rapid Antigen Testing in all of this?
  • Could we cut the salaries of home-based employees?
