Our employment-focused "Online Check-In" hospitality webinar was held on 17 June 2020. Industry experts Jane Amphlett and Lydia Christie, of Howard Kennedy's Employment team, discussed the employment outlook for the hotel industry with the re-opening of businesses as the coronavirus lock-down restrictions are eased.

This webinar is aimed at hotel owners, operators, financiers, agents and HR directors. Our experts cover key employment law considerations hoteliers should be thinking about and may need guidance on.

How can you use the flexible furlough scheme (including government guidance released on 12 June)? 

How should you be preparing for employees to return to work including: 

  • Health and safety obligations, including managing risks;
  • Choosing which employees you need to return - selection issues; 
  • Whether changes to terms and conditions are required;
  • Managing self-isolation requirements (due to track and trace) and staff returning from overseas;
  • Managing holiday accrual. 

How should you be planning for any redundancies and/or lay off of staff:

  • Considering the comparative costs/procedures;
  • Practical management of remote procedures.
