A hybrid work model has become the reality for many workplaces, but with this shifting landscape of work comes a series of legal considerations. After the COVID-19 pandemic changed the shape of many workplaces, flexible work arrangements have become the new normal, bringing with them many issues to consider. How should changes to terms of employment be handled? What can be done to ensure equitable treatment of employees with protected needs? These key questions and more were addressed on May 18, 2022 through a virtual conversation, Legal implications for your Hybrid Workplace.
Maddie Axelrod, a partner in BLG’s Labour & Employment group, and Melissa Eldridge, counsel in the Labour & Employment group, led the event. Part of the L&E breakfast club series, they discussed key legal considerations of the hybrid and remote work models before answering questions from the virtual attendees.
Workplaces look different now than they have in years past, but taking these legal implications into account will ensure that new hybrid and remote work models operate effectively for everyone. Reach out to Maddie Axelrod, Melissa Eldridge or the BLG Labour & Employment group if you have further questions about the legal considerations for hybrid workplaces.
