Quarantine has led to many legislative innovations in labor law. Novels such as remote work or flexible working hours will continue to operate after the end of the quarantine restrictions and will continue to apply to the "employee-employer" relationship. The labor legislation of Ukraine is quite outdated. It does not regulate all the nuances of labor relations, so the answers to the most controversial questions can be found in the current court practice. At our webinar, GOLAW expert explained in details the main trends in labor relations, which are relevant in 2021: remote work, flexible working hours, and options for organizing labor relations during the quarantine.
