Employment and Commercial Leasing During COVID-19

Walshs Partner, Hugh Walsh, recently spoke with two experts from law firm Hillhouse Legal Partners – Managing Director Zac Herps and Director Robert Lamb – to answer some of the questions many of our clients have during the challenging times we are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both Zac and Robert have a strong history advising businesses across all sectors and have been working around the clock to keep business owners up-to-date on key issues relating to employment and commercial leasing.

The enlightening video covers a wide range of topics including:

  • The obligations of businesses to their landlords when they can foresee problems with paying their rent on commercial premises.
  • The options business owners or managers have if an employee is sick with COVID-19, has been directed by the government to self-quarantine or has children doing school lessons at home.
  • What businesses can do if they cannot keep staff gainfully employed due to the impact of COVID-19.
