This week, we publish the latest version of ‘A Guide to COVID-19 Injury Claims’, on our website.
The main aim of our new claims handling guide is to investigate whether a wave of employers’ liability/public liability (EL/PL) claims will emerge from the global pandemic.
In doing so, we analyse the workplaces worst hit by viral transmission, lay out a clear chronology of the Government’s action plan to control the spread of infection, consider the key duties owed by employers and local authorities to best ensure protection and provide an overview of the relevant legal framework, in the event that breaches of duty are alleged.
