In the July edition of the publication On Your Radar, our valuable member C’M’S’, ranked amongst Top 10 Global Law Firms, talks about the international response to the removal of locks and return to work. As the Pandemic presses fast forward on change, we need to understand the global response, even at this relatively early stage.

July 2020

Our report covers a variety of return to work issues, from whether employees have a legal right to refuse to come to work because of concerns over COVID-19, to monitoring of homeworkers. 27 CMS jurisdictions from around the world took part in our survey in June 2020.

As with all COVID-19 issues the situation will no doubt evolve, but we wanted to identify and share early indications of how the return to work process was developing and how this might shape workplaces and practices.

If you want to get in touch to find out more about a development in a particular country covered, or any other CMS jurisdiction, please speak to your usual CMS contact or e-mail
