Webinar Recording: Coronavirus and the METS Industry - Managing the Legal and Business Impacts
Harris Gomez Group recently joined Austmine to provide a legal update to members in this live webinar.
They addressed the following topics:
- Completing contracts: With many METS companies facing disruptions, they may find it hard to perform contracts on time, or alternatively companies may have problems with contractors meeting obligations. They explained the rights and obligations in these scenarios, and how to manage contracts to ensure as little disruption as possible.
- Employment law issues: Many METS companies are sending people to work from home where possible, or directing others to take leave (be it sick, annual or unpaid). Harris Gomez Group discussed some of the legal impacts of this and what the guidelines from the Fair Work Ombudsman say.
- Travel restrictions and personnel interruptions: With most companies stopping all non-essential travel and many countries restricting travel or closing borders, what happens to METS companies who, for example, need to deal with a situation “on the ground” in another country? They discussed some options available to companies in these positions.
