Webinar: Managing the workforce during the crisis in the Baltics and Belarus

Place: MS Teams Live Event
Time: 15:00, April 29, 2020
Working language: English

We invite you to join our webinar about how COVID-19 is affecting employers and employees in the Baltic and Belarus region.

During the webinar we will present a brief general overview of the current status of the labour markets and then focus on managing the workforce during the crisis.

We will discuss country-by-country legal aspects of teleworking and look at various options available for employers to navigate these uncertain times and meet cost-cutting needs.

There will be an opportunity to send questions to speakers at the time of the event, but we do not guarantee that we can respond to everyone because of time restrictions. Therefore, you are also welcome to send your most crucial questions in advance to ensure that we discuss the topic during the webinar and can make the webinar as useful and practical as possible.
