As we are experiencing a resurgence of Covid-19, businesses may potentially be put in a position again to consider a temporary variation of employees’ terms of employment (particularly in relation to employees’ pay) in response to the renewed impact of Covid-19 and in order to remain afloat - be it in conjunction with a potential further installment of a wage subsidy scheme, or not.
Variations to employees’ terms of employment that were effected by businesses during the period of the last lockdown came under significant scrutiny and a number of recent determinations from the Employment Relations Authority have highlighted the risk for and liability of businesses in relation to such variations.
EMA Legal has prepared practical guidelines in this respect and a letter template based on best practice and learnings from the recent case law to assist businesses with effecting such variations in a lawful manner so that they are prepared and do not become the next casualty in the Employment Relations Authority.
