Inequality, home working and monitoring… what is the long-term fallout of the pandemic?

As many countries around the world experience a reduction in COVID-19 infections and attempt to reopen their economies, companies both large and small are faced with the daunting challenges of conducting business in a post-pandemic world.

Although these challenges vary from country to country, COVID-19 has changed the way we work and do business. The only questions are: will the pandemic's impact be permanent and if so what will be the long-term fallout? Will remote working, widely employed during restrictions, become the norm in the future? Or will employees gradually return to onsite offices, factories and warehouses?

CMS Employment recently conducted a webinar to answer these questions and explore insights about the effects which the pandemic is having on issues such as diversity, agile/home working, and data privacy.

If you did not have a chance to attend, please find a webinar recording and a podcast based on this webinar below.

Our guest speaker was Jeremias Adams-Prassl, Professor in the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford. Jeremias is an employment expert, and has a particular focus on the future of work. Amongst his many publications is his book “Humans as a Service”, where he explores the global shift to a ‘gig’ economy. He was joined by Alison Woods, partner and Co-Head of CMS Employment in the UK. The session was moderated by Daniela Krömer, Attorney-at-law for European employment law.
