It has been a tumultuous year for the world as a whole and the worlds of work and employment law have been dramatically affected too. It has been fascinating to see how different countries and jurisdictions have adopted varied approaches and techniques to deal with the unprecedented challenges thrown up by the COVID-19 pandemic. This Global Overview seeks to highlight those varied approaches and some of the similarities too.
The forced and sudden shift to remote working will long be recognized as one of the most significant impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic for employers. Although government-imposed restrictions have fluctuated from time to time around the world, the fact that many of the world’s largest economies have remained in some form of lockdown for more than a year has dispelled any doubts that the shift to remote working is a short-term phenomenon. The expectation is that, even after vaccination programs are complete, a large proportion of employees will expect to work from home at least some of the time going forward in a hybrid model. Employers’ response to this change in working habits may be crucial to their future success, and it brings with it many employment-law considerations.
