This virtual session will provide an overview of the background to HR issues around self-isolating/shielding, before going on to look at attendance management issues, including how to account for COVID-related absence. It then looks in some depth at the legal issues in the context of attendance management following the scheduled lockdown easing. The sessions will provide practical guidance on a number of issues that you may be dealing with, including:

  • Recording and managing COVID related absence;
  • Returning shielding and other vulnerable staff to work (including coronaphobia);
  • Potential discrimination issues;
  • Specific health and safety obligations (including example cases); and
  • Associated legal issues, including protection against detriment and/or dismissal, as well as the potential for whistleblowing claims.

The session is relevant to all those managing staff in a healthcare setting.

The session will be delivered by Amy Millson who advises clients on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues. She supports organisations in dealing with difficult investigations, disciplinary and grievance processes, and also defends Employment Tribunal claims, ranging from unfair dismissal claims, to multifaceted discrimination, whistleblowing and victimisation claims. She regularly advises clients on day-to-day employment related matters, such as performance management, redundancies and sickness absence. She also provides strategic advice on non-contentious issues such as restructuring, collective consultation and TUPE.

Amy has experience of advising on disciplinary issues involving senior medical staff and ‘Maintaining High Professional Standards in the Modern NHS’ ('MHPS'), and also has experience in advising on the legal issues arising from doctors in training. In addition, Amy frequently provides support to organisations in relation to employment issues concerning Directors and Senior Executives. Given her experience, Amy is well positioned to provide pragmatic legal and HR support in a healthcare setting.

This online training will be 2.5 hours and includes a break.
