Employer’s Guide to Planning for a Pandemic - 11 March 2020 (On Demand)


Managing and supporting staff to comply with employment law obligations.

“Failing to plan is like planning to fail”. It’s important that you plan for your people’s safety and respond quickly!

The outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus in China has caused worldwide concern and disruptions, with health authorities warning us to expect cases in New Zealand.

The Ministry of Health has set guidelines for self-isolation for staff returning from China or following exposure to the virus.

Many employers are eager to meet their employment obligations under these guidelines. In our webinar, we will answer questions so you can best support staff:

  • What are your employment law and health and safety obligations regarding the novel coronavirus?
  • What are your sick leave obligations and responsibilities to pay staff in self-isolation?
  • How do you manage flexible working from home?
  • How can you manage the potential for racial discrimination?

This practical webinar will also help you prepare for and respond to an outbreak, while meeting your employment law obligations. We will answer questions such as:

  • What steps should you take to prepare your staff and business for an outbreak?
  • How can you prevent spread of infection?
  • How do you manage business recovery and resilience?
  • What are your ongoing employment law obligations?
