Covid-19 and its HR impact: Social and fiscal support measures and/or restructuring?

September 10, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (CEST)
Ends: 2:00 PM (CEST)

The Covid-19 crisis will have a considerable impact on the future of companies and how they organize their workforce. 

During the first part of this webinar we will provide you with practical information about the different support measures (both HR/social and fiscal measures) that have been adopted and that your business can implement in order to minimize costs and obtain more breathing space, with a view to avoiding a serious restructuring if possible.

For some businesses these measures will not be enough, and a restructuring will be unavoidable. Therefore, during the second half of this webinar will look more closely at the different restructuring possibilities and the main points to bear in mind. In particular, we will consider the consequences of collective and multiple dismissal, of closing all or part of an undertaking, and of other (less drastic) scenarios.

As we traverse these different topics during the webinar, we will also focus on the importance of clear communication whenever a business is forced to take measures such as these.

This webinar will be presented in Dutch and French.
