The last 20 months have seen a significant shift in the way we work, the COVID-19 Pandemic has made companies re-think the traditional working practices and the days of 9am to 5pm based in the office is a thing of the past. This has come with many new issues in the area of employment law with new guidelines being issued by the Government on employees “Right to Disconnect”, along with much talk about devising a return-to-work protocol and the constant discussion around remote or hybrid working models.
