  • Can you force an employee to self-quarantine if they appear unwell?
  • What if an employee refuses to come to work, or perform certain duties, due to exposure fears?
  • Can you force staff to take annual leave or personal leave?
  • Can you request staff to reduce their hours or salary?
  • Can you restrict staff travel?
  • Working from home arrangements:
    • does an employer have to allow an employee to work from home?
    • what if an employee injures themselves at home?
    • what if schools close and an employee has to stay home to care for their child?

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
