Personal Injury Claims against Employers arising from the Covid-19 PPE Shortage

Date: 30/04/2020 CPD: 30 minutes Cost: Free Venue: Webinar via Zoom

In the first in a series of webinars by the 2TG Personal Injury Team, Helen Wolstenholme and Lucinda Spearman consider the legal landscape surrounding the shortage of PPE, including:

  • To what extent are employers’ duties relaxed in this unprecedented public emergency?
  • Can an infected family member claim against a key worker’s employer?
  • How are the courts likely to grapple with causation?
  • Are health workers returning to the front line from retirement consenting to the risk of injury?
  • What steps can employers take now to insulate themselves against future claims?
