Navigating the Covid-19 Workplace – A Swedish and British Perspective


As the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic becomes apparent, employers are facing unprecedented challenges in protecting their staff and responding to employee concerns while maintaining operations. Questions arise such as:

  • Can you force an employee to return to work?

  • What are the obligations as an employer when employees are working remotely?

  • How do we ensure safety for employees returning to the workplace?

The British-Swedish Chamber of Commerce is pleased to invite you to this Webinar and Q&A, hosted by Eversheds-Sutherland, where employment law experts Per Westman from Sweden and Mark Hammerton from the UK will speak about Covid-19 related issues facing employers as businesses begin to think about reopening post-pandemic.

Per Westman and Mark Hammerton will also cover temporary Covid-19 government measures introduced in both countries and anticipate the medium-/long-term impact from an employment perspective.

The presentation will last for about 40 minutes, with the last 20 minutes dedicated to an open chat-based Q&A. Feel free to prepare any questions you may have to our experts from both countries.

Date: 8 October 2020
Time: 10.00 – 11.00 CEST
