Our expert teams will be hosting a selection of FREE webinars discussing business options during the coronavirus lockdown.
Wednesday 25th March 4pm.
Join our commercial partner Jon Esner as we discuss some of the issues being faced by businesses impacted by the current crisis.
We will consider a range of questions from the point of view of both suppliers and customers including:-
Can a supplier be held liable for non-performance because it can’t source raw materials or because its employees are off sick ? Can a buyer cancel an order because it has been ordered to close? Are consumers able to cancel holidays (or other bookings) without liability?
We will consider in particular the impact and effect of “force majeure” clauses and the law of frustration.
Thursday 26th March 11am

Chris will cover a variety of issues for employers including: - pay and bonuses, leave and sabbaticals, Government support and processes for ensuring any workforce reduction processes are fair and robust.
