Available now on:

Amongst a range of relevant topics, we discuss varying team members’ employment arrangements – going part-time, asking people to use their annual leave, what happens when team members go negative in their personal leave and standing down people on no pay.


We also delved into the thorny issue of team members working from home, including employer responsibilities and a range of logistical issues that invariably arise such as IT security, business use of personal assets and expectations of work performance.
