The ongoing Covid-19 crisis raises numerous challenges of legal nature that people and companies must now face on a daily basis.
In light of this crisis, EY Law received many questions concerning the various legal consequences of the current pandemic, the government confinement measures taken to contain it and the inevitable economic disruption that result therefrom, such as:
- What are my obligations as a director in case the company faces insolvency risks and how can I avoid becoming liable?;
- What is the impact on the procedure of social elections?;
- Does Covid-19 qualify as a force majeure, and what could be the consequences on my ongoing agreements?;
- How can an ongoing transaction be protected or terminated in case of economic disruption?;
- Will annual financial statements and general meetings be delayed?;
- Is it necessary to disclose the impact on operations or any default in my annual reporting?;
- Do the particular circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic override data protection law and in particular with regards to the processing of personal data of employees?;
In order to provide answers to your most burning legal questions and shed some light on important matters of attention, EY Law schedules a webinar on Friday March 27 (10:00 – 11:30)
