Please join Janet Copeland (of Copeland Ashcroft Law) as she outlines the employer’s obligations with the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19)

There is no better time for employer’s, business owners and managers to understand their associated legal obligations to their employees.

Covid-19 is affecting the health of New Zealanders and the economy. We don’t know how long this current lockdown will go on for or how significant the effects will be but we do know that many businesses are facing uncertainty and potentially challenging times ahead.

Please join us for an afternoon session exploring the obligations of employers in the face of Covid-19, answering your questions around employer obligations during lockdown, the wage subsidy, restructuring & H&S obligations
