Kott Gunning COVID-19 Response Team Update – Focus on Employment Law and Workplace Safety

Kott Gunning’s COVID-19 Response Team was formed as the crisis began to take shape and has been providing services and support to clients across the firm’s various services since that time. The purpose of the COVID-19 Response Team is to provide a range of information on key legal issues to help our clients navigate the challenging environment arising from COVID-19.

Our team will continue to provide legal updates on current and topical matters to our clients via the Kott Gunning website, our newsletter and on LinkedIn.

Focus on Employment Law and Workplace Safety

Never before has the focus been more squarely on employment law and workplace safety matters with the landscape changing so rapidly. The modern workplace can be a skyscraper in the city or a desk at home. Whatever the set-up, there are laws governing how that workplace needs to be managed.

In this update, we would like to highlight the expertise and experience that form part of Kott Gunning’s team in this area. Our experience across the full spectrum of employment law issues means that our work is always directed towards achieving our clients’ key business goals.

Our Employment Law and Workplace Safety team is versatile and experienced, with a broad and in-depth range of knowledge and expertise in employment and workplace issues.

COVIDSafe App

As we hopefully move into the next stage of the relaxing of social distancing regulations and a safe return to work, Kott Gunning would like to encourage as many people as possible to consider downloading the COVIDSafe app. The app provides health agencies and professionals with the ability to rapidly contact trace, which is a crucial step before there can be a loosening of current lockdown measures and in terms of providing longer term resilience to the virus.

If you require any assistance or further information, please feel free to contact any of the Kott Gunning Partners.
