    Misbehaviour in any workplace can have devastating consequences. Sexual harassment, bullying, victimisation, discrimination in the workplace are all key risk areas.  But with so many changes in how we work in 2020, comes new challenges to traditional thinking about where the workplace begins and ends.

With clients coming from a diverse range of cultural and religious backgrounds it is more important than ever that lawyers are equipped to foresee, and act appropriately in varying situations. While this can be difficult in person, it can be even more difficult meeting a client for the first time online. Although technology may help on some occasions, it can sometimes hinder client relationship development.

    Throughout this present COVID-19 era, practitioners have had to come to terms with virtual client meetings, social distancing and virtual hearings. As the pandemic continues to impact us all, virtual hearings and the use of technology in court proceedings will likely to continue into the future. While there may have been some leniency afforded to practitioners at the beginning of the pandemic when it came to technology, appearance and etiquette, that time has now passed and it is business as usual for virtual hearings.
