WorkLife 2.0: Oversight and compliance challenges

July 1, 2020

Employers are considering keeping the working from home set-up for some time to come, and (in some cases) possibly for good. There has been a lot of discussion about what that might mean from an oversight perspective, and how it might change employers’ risk profile. 

In this session, Ben Morgan, Caroline Stroud, Holly Insley and Olivia Radin consider how companies are approaching their compliance and oversight arrangements and the impact of the new working environment on whistleblowing. They also discuss the possible approach of regulators when it comes to evaluating oversight standards, as well as the challenges that the new working environment holds for in-house lawyers and compliance officers.
