About the event

This seminar is available as a Webinar Only 

It is now common for lawyers and support staff to be working outside of the ‘office’ whether because of agreed flexible work practices or on an ad-hoc basis. Either way, issues arise that need to be addressed by the practice to ensure confidentiality, risk minimization and staff safety.

Topics include:

  •  Duties as an employer- safe workplace
  •  Confidentiality…where is the risk and how to minimise
  • Supervision of staff particularly Graduates and Restricted Practitioners
  • Use of Technology to assist with remote work and dealing with risk
  • Record keeping…risk of incomplete records, using phone, SMS, printing
  • Firm culture…leading by example and setting the tone
  • Communication issues and best practice for remote teams
