Regulating Remotely

remote working becomes the ordinary everyday


Back to all podcasts and videos

In this webinar members of our Financial Services group explore the various issues caused by remote working that financial services firms face.

A mass return to the workplace may be many months away. Working from the home office is now the norm for most in the financial services industry. In such an important and highly regulated industry, however, there are a number of legal and practical implications that organisations, management and individual employees need to be aware of and adjustments must be made to policies and procedures to ensure compliance in a longer-term remote working environment.

In this webinar members of our Financial Services group explore multiple issues including:

  • Regulatory: guidance on the FCA’s approach to financial regulation in lockdown.
  • Employment law: including the latest government guidance and the challenges of monitoring employees from home.
  • Data protection: including the risk of data breaches due to increased online sharing of data and reliance on less secure networks.
  • Commercial real estate: including evaluating your future office needs and the options available to you when negotiating with landlords.
  • Contractual matters: including terminating or amending supplier agreements and revisiting standard terms and conditions.
