Catherine O'Flynn, Head of our Employment & Benefits department, joined Brian Crooke from the Work Well Podcast to talk about how businesses in Ireland are coping with remote work.

Brian Crooke: "Like many organisations, remote work became a necessity quite suddenly for William Fry and the whole company has been working from their homes since the 13th of March, Catherine tells us. As a professional services law firm, remote work was not the norm, but it has been an option for some employees even before the pandemic. They already had the infrastructure; the IT systems and support services which were in place for anyone wanting to work from home. The transition to this new working environment was more straightforward for those that had already worked remotely previously, but now they have a support system in place for the entire workforce."

The podcast covers topics such as:

  • Changing the way people perceive remote work
  • The legal implications for employers regarding remote work
  • What working arrangement options can employers offer after the pandemic
