  • Members Planning Ahead & Minimising Risk for Your Employees Returning to Work
    May 19, 2020
    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

There are significant pressures on business owners, through no fault of their own because of COVID-19. The disruption came suddenly and might end suddenly… or not. Either way, businesses must be ready to welcome their workforce to the new normal. This could mean back to the office, working remotely or a hybrid model. Therefore, being able to plan ahead and minimise the risk of this eventuality is important.

We’re delighted to be welcoming Dawn Robertson, partner and employment law specialist at Rooney Nimmo to host this session.  Our thanks to Dawn for kindly giving her time and giving guidance on key considerations ahead of employees returning to work.  This session will incorporate a Q & A session with plenty of opportunity to ask your employment law related questions.

Key topics Dawn will be covering include:

    • Reinstating furloughed staff
    • Flexible working requests
    • Holidays
    • Staff safety
    • Social distancing
    • Hygiene in the workplace


With two decades of experience, most recently as a partner in another Scottish law firm, she has significant expertise at advising on employment law matters, from issues arising from company acquisitions and sales to complex disciplinary, capability or grievance matters.

 With her extensive experience of the practical as well as the legal, Dawn is also often instructed to advise on the management of difficult exits, particularly from senior management positions.

In the last few weeks, Dawn has been requested to deliver tailored sessions to over 100 management teams by national bodies, venture capital investors and multi-national investment houses as they seek to support their members and portfolio companies.

Members, please check your text messages or in the events section of our app for the link to register after which you will be emailed the dial-in details.  Remember you can  submit a maximum of 2 questions prior to the event – instructions are in the confirmation email.

Our series of COVID-19 Support Events are FREE for WeDO Scotland members and take place twice weekly in addition to our weekly Brainstorming meetings every Monday at 11am and our Social Drinks on Thursdays at 5pm.
