Legal advice concerning coronavirus

The coronavirus is still spreading all over the world. The Swiss government as well as the governments of other countries in the affected areas have decided on drastic measures for individuals and companies, which will have legal consequences in economic interaction. This affects both company employees and business relations, especially cross-border trade and supply chains.

A wide range of issues arise in connection with employment law, such as the continued payment of wages in the event of the prolonged absence of an employee due to the supervision of underage children.

Furthermore, the interruption of supply chains or tightened border controls may lead to delays in delivery or the impossibility of timely delivery. In connection with contracts, for example, the question arises whether a supplier can invoke a case of force majeure in the event of a delay or not. The same question also arises in the case of delays in construction or on construction sites.

Furthermore, meetings with more than 5 persons are officially forbidden, which means that all events have to be cancelled. In this context, the question arises whether insurance can be claimed.

Numerous legal questions also arise with regard to the upcoming ordinance of the Federal Council on loans or short-time work.
