Ask the Experts – a Monthly Q&A with Sintons’ Employment Team – episode 24


Today we recorded our ‘Ask the Experts monthly Q&A with Sintons’ Employment Team – episode 24’ – with Angela Carver and Catherine Hope. These sessions came about due to the employment team here at Sintons having been inundated with COVID-19 and furlough questions following the introduction of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the ever changing government guidance.

Our session today covers the following topics:

  • Can I force an employee to take holiday during the notice period?
  • Does an employer have to conduct a fair selection process for lay-offs (rather than redundancies)?
  • Can I extend a probation period?
  • Is it possible to sign an employment contract by electronic signature?

For your convenience we have also recorded this session as both a webinar and podcast, links to both are below.
