HR experts Peninsula in conjunction with Ennis Chamber will host a number of timely webinars over the coming weeks, to address key HR issues.
When it comes to reopening in the next two months, a COVID-19 Business Response Plan is one of the most essential documents you should have in place.
The Plan should identify the individuals on the response team and the procedures to be followed when dealing with a suspected case of COVID-19 at work.
It should also include an obligation on employees to immediately notify management if they develop any symptoms.
To help you put your Plan together, this Peninsula webinar will cover areas such as:
2. Right to Disconnect and Parent’s Leave, Thursday, May 20, at 11am. (This webinar is delivered by Peninsula sister company Graphite HRM)
In early April, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar signed the Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Right to Disconnect (the Code). The Right to Disconnect allows employees to switch off from work outside of normal working hours. With mobile communications devices so prevalent in the workplace, the Code envisages that employees will exercise their right not to respond immediately to emails, telephone calls, or other messages outside normal working hours.
To dig deeper into the three key rights enshrined in the Code and explain what your business needs to do, Graphite HRM are hosting a webinar to look at:
1. What is the Right to Disconnect?
2. Employer and employee obligations.
3. How to ensure employees switch off.
4. The latest on Parent’s leave and Paternity Leave.
The Right to Disconnect represents a key development in employment law.

Managing the COVID-19 Vaccination in Your Business, Tuesday June 22, at 2pm

Add in the fact that there’s currently no legal basis to insist that people take the vaccine, and managing vaccinations in the workplace becomes a whole lot trickier. Still, it’s best to prepare for the vaccination before your employees become eligible so your business can move forward as safely and strongly as possible.
That means getting the answers on how to resolve hesitancy issues, what to do about employees returning to work without having the jab, and how to ensure a safe working environment for your employees.
