Coronavirus: Employment and immigration views from Germany, France, the UK and Ireland

Pinsent Masons Employment & Reward team look at how business can continue to respond effectively to the outbreak of coronavirus, officially Covid-19, in Germany, France, the UK and Ireland. The outbreak raises many issues for employers, including points of employment and immigration law.

Our Employment & Reward team is receiving queries from employers about how to deal with this issue. These include:

  • pay for periods of self-isolation; 
  • requiring staff to take holiday and accrued overtime;
  • ways to reduce salaries and provide more flexible employment terms and conditions;
  • ways to avoid redundancies;
  • seeking evidence of travel arrangements;
  • issues around immigration and travel.

This session shares current thinking and practical solutions, alongside insights from our German, UK and French teams.
