Coronavirus and the METS Industry: Managing the Legal and Business Impacts

Harris Gomez Group will be joining Austmine to provide a legal update to members on Wednesday 25th March.

Interesting times from a legal perspective! In this webinar, we will discuss the impacts that the coronavirus is having on the METS industry from a legal and business/operations point of view, and discuss some practical solutions. This will include 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. We will explain 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). We will discuss 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? We discuss some options available to companies in these positions.
