Introduction

Businesses are now aware, more than ever, of the devastating effects a natural disaster can have on business operations and ongoing business success. Many businesses will be working through issues caused during what has been an extraordinary period of natural disasters and severe weather related events – be they earthquakes, floods and even fires. This webinar focuses on some of the key issues businesses (and their legal advisers) are likely to need to consider in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster.

Topics covered in the webinar include:
  • interaction with local authorities;
  • employer’s responsibilities and health and safety issues,
  • insurance issues,
  • business access and business interruption issues,
  • landlord/tenant issues, and
  • purchaser/vendor issues.

The webinar is intended to alert practitioners to the key issues that may arise for clients
following a natural disaster, and to provide a summary of where to look for further
guidance.
