Young Professional Webinar and Q&A: Employment rights – returning to work

Welcome to a webinar and Q&A featuring guest speaker Sejal Raja, Partner and Head of Employment at RadcliffesLeBrasseur LLP, that will provide you with a thorough legal understanding of employment rights upon returning back to work after the ensuing pandemic. This webinar is co-hosted by the London Young Lawyers Group. 

NB: This webinar is targeted at young professionals under the age of 35. 

In the wake of COVID-19, millions of employees across the United Kingdom are adapting to new workplace environments and circumstances. The British government has carried out various measures to aid employees and businesses in managing throughout the times of uncertainty. As a young professional employee, it can perhaps be particularly important to be aware of one's legal rights. In this interactive webinar and Q&A, Sejal Raja will share her legal expertise on HR policies and employment rights in light of the current situation. 

Key topics that will be discussed during the webinar include: 

  • Employment rights when returning to work from the Furlough scheme – Will employees definitely go back to their previous roles? Will the contracts change? 
  • Practical considerations when returning to work – What paperwork can be expected to be received from the employer? How might targets and bonuses be affected?
  • How will the workplace change? – Will employees be working from home more often? Will the meetings be virtual?
  • What are the employees' rights regarding redundancy?

Sejal Raja is a Partner and Head of Employment at RadcliffesLeBrasseur LLP, a leading UK-based law firm. Sejal advises employers and employees on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law. Sejal advises on all aspects of employment law, including drafting and negotiating employment contracts, disciplinary and grievance procedures, dismissal and redundancy, whistleblowing claims, discrimination claims and equal pay disputes.

This webinar is a co-hosted event between the SCC and London Young Lawyers Group - LYLG. The LYLG act as a London branch of the Law Society Junior Lawyers Division and organises events in London on a monthly basis for law students and young lawyers up to 7 years PQE.
