As the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) emergency worsens, governments, businesses and individuals are scrambling to keep up with a host of unprecedented challenges. Here is our collection of articles to help you with the impact on your business, including issues regarding business continuity and undertaking risk assessments, protecting the health and safety of your employees, and mitigating risks in regard to trade and commerce.

Coronavirus poses potential risks to the business of employers and the health and wellbeing of employees. As well as emergency planning and risk assessment, we cover the rights and obligations of employers.

The virus is disrupting business operations all over the world, with manufacturing, tourism, trade and transport taking a particularly devastating hit. Due to ceased operations and quarantines in badly affected areas, many organisations need to review, break or renegotiate their contracts. We look at when businesses may seek to rely on force majeure clauses or other contractual rights for relief from the performance of certain obligations due to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.
