Back to Business During COVID-19 -- Has Your Business Worked Through the Legal Considerations?


Margrit recently joined the North Metro Denver Small Business Development Center (here's their website) for multiple online webinars and discussions about various legal considerations as businesses increase their operations during the time of continued restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A focus was on developing actionable items related to the public health and safety aspect of operating during the pandemic with government restrictions in place:

  1. Build your team and circle of support - looking to your internal team and your professional advisors

  2. Public health and safety compliance

  3. Risk management and preparing for claims/liability exposure

  4. Planning for future surge/business interruption

These are relevant to caring for both customers and employees. Has your business designated a key individual to track and implement all necessary measures for compliance and safety? Have you implemented all tools available to you for risk management, such as checking with your agent for available liability or other business insurance or putting robust measures in place for processes, signage with warnings, waivers (if appropriate), and documentation? We are in this for the long haul, and it is never too late to reflect on the measures that should be taken and to check in with your professional advisors for guidance.
