Understanding Force Majeure & Covid-19 virus

18 Mar 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


Covid-19: understanding when Force Majeure applies and when you can cancel contracts

Many small business owners are worrying about how Covid-19 may affect our work, our businesses and future bookings – what can we do about cancellations and does Force Majeure apply?

Suzanne Dibble, Founder of the Small Business Legal Academy, is running a free webinar on this subject on Wednesday 18th March 2020 12.30pm GMT which will cover where you stand on cancelling   contracts, Force Majeure and termination rights including;

  • Running an event in the near future and have a contract with a venue for that event and are wondering what the legal position is with cancellation.
  • Concerns about how a supplier will continue to provide supplies if half of its workforce is ill or supply chains are interrupted.
  • Concerns about clients cancelling contracts with you if you are ill and not able to work for a period.

A recording of the training will be made available in the Small Business Legal Academy, as will a checklist of termination and force majeure rights.  If you are not yet a member of the Legal Academy, you need to be on the live training.
