Reopening Retail: COVID-19 live employer Q&A

Date: Thu 04 Jun

Time: 11am

Bira are joining forces with Bira Legal Employment Law and Health & Safety experts to discuss the latest developments impacting the Retail sector and answer any questions you may have about reopening your store.

With the Prime Minister recently announcing that  all non-essential retailers will be able to reopen in England from 15th June, the Ellis Whittam (the team behind the Bira Legal service) Director of Legal Services, James Tamm, and Director of Health & Safety Services, Nick Wilson, will be dissecting all of the major talking points and exploring how businesses in the Retail sector can prepare for a safe and smooth transition to the “new norm”.

The pair will be addressing the potential employment ramifications of a return to work, including:

  • workforce planning
  • staff absence
  • testing and tracking guidance
  • furlough


They’ll be explaining how you can ensure health and safety due diligence, covering:

  • practical control measures
  • risk assessments
  • your legal obligations


James and Nick will be joined by Bira CEO, Andrew Goodacre, who will be offering industry-leading insight on preparing to open, retailing post-COVID-19, and what we can learn from Europe.

With retailers likely to come under the microscope over the coming weeks and months, this 30-minute session aims to keep you abreast of the latest government guidance, avoid costly mistakes, and minimise any delays to getting your business back on track.
