Challenges both biological and digital

The world is in the grip of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, with both the number of infected and the death toll continuing to rise, presenting unprecedented challenges to businesses and governments. Companies are faced with the twin test of business and productivity losses as work-from-home arrangements continue.

Companies must also stay abreast of their rights and obligations as they take measures to both stay operational and protect their employees.

The article reminds us that while employers consider legally viable solutions to tackle the operational difficulties arising from the coronavirus outbreak, they should be mindful of being compassionate, give due consideration to individual employees’ circumstances and permit flexible work arrangements. A fair balance needs to be struck between the legitimate interests of employers and employees to achieve the best possible outcome for all parties.
