The Right to Disconnect - Implications, Challenges & Solutions for Employment & HR Professionals
According to a recent survey conducted by LinkedIn, people working from home are working on average an extra 28 hours a month.
This hidden overtime is likely to further fuel calls for ministers to give UK home workers a ‘right to disconnect’, but what does this mean for businesses?
This virtual classroom seminar will explore this tricky area and the challenges organisations face following 18 months of disruption caused by COVID-19.
Leading employment lawyer and trainer, Kate Shepherd will consider the legal implications required to negotiate with staff and agree rules on when people cannot be contacted for work purposes.
