The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation is still developing and is being followed worldwide with great interest and obvious concern. For companies the virus poses challenges and raises various questions. What are your obligations as an employer? And what is the impact of the GDPR in this situation? What happens with liability in a force majeure situation?

In this podcast our employment and commercial experts share possible measures and practical recommendations. We touch on employers’ duties to staff and practical steps that businesses can take to reduce disruption. From a commercial perspective, we discuss whether the Coronavirus situation amounts to a Force Majeure event, whether the situation allows a party to terminate a contract or to request amendments.
