Ask our lawyers: Employment law and COVID-19

29 April 2020

The Employment, Labour and Equalities Group at Gowling WLG will be holding a live 'Ask our Lawyers' session on a variety of topics related to COVID-19 and the workplace challenges your business might be facing, whether you continue to operate as an essential business or have temporarily ceased operations voluntarily or pursuant to a government-mandated shutdown.
