COVID-19 Update

Although it will hopefully abate soon, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has generated, and will continue to generate, unique and challenging questions of law arising from business interruption insurance policies, commercial leases, contracts, and employment practices. The Greer Law Firm is prepared to help individuals, businesses, commercial landlords, contracting parties, and employers navigate those challenges by providing advice and recommendations based on the specific facts, relationships and contracts involved.

Potential issues include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • The liability of contracting parties for delays in performance or cancellation of contracts;
  • The applicability and enforceability of force majeure provisions (particularly Act of God, unanticipated circumstances beyond the parties' control and pandemic provisions, if any) in contracts, commercial leases and insurance policies;
  • Supply chain disruptions;
  • The applicability of business interruption insurance provisions;
  • The application of common law doctrines to contract performance, e.g., impossibility of performance, impracticability of performance, and frustration of purpose that may excuse of delay performance;
  • The cancellation or postponement of major conferences, trade shows and other large events;
  • The responsibility of employers to monitor their workforce and guard against the spread of COVID-19, and their liability for the failure to do so;
  • The applicability of employee handbook provisions and State and Federal employment laws, including the Family and Medical Leave Act and paid sick leave provisions; and
  • Employer compliance with applicable State and Federal employment and safety laws, including accommodation and the viability of a remote work policy.

If you and/or your business are dealing with any of the foregoing issues, then please contact the Firm as soon as possible so that steps can be taken to find a solution and mitigate the potential damage.
