COVID-19 UK: helping you navigate the aftermath

11 June 2020 | Applicable law: England and Wales

Withers' lawyers have written extensively on the changes and the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on a diverse range of sectors and industries. We have put these articles together in a selection to help you navigate the issues you may be facing.

The Covid-19 crisis is far from over. While some countries begin a slow 'opening up' - particularly in Asia but now increasingly so in Europe - others, such as Brazil, remain acutely affected. It remains uncertain just how long we will be living with the social and economic aftermath of Covid-19.

In the UK, the relaxation of the significant restrictions on individuals and businesses lags behind other European nations. For those who are particularly vulnerable, it is still not clear when their long period of social isolation will come to an end in any meaningful way. Others continue to juggle caring responsibilities with working from home. Businesses which have just about managed to avoid insolvency thanks to emergency government schemes will face tough choices and further risks as some of those measures begin to be withdrawn.

Against this challenging background, significant pieces of legislation have passed quickly through Parliament. Employers, employees, company directors, hospitality sector workers, holidaymakers, landlords and tenants, taxpayers, expats and many others have seen sudden and important changes to their legal rights and obligations.
