COVID-19 Sorgfaltspflichten und Haftung

Linde Verlag, Sep 2020

The COVID-19 crisis presents enormous challenges for executives. The already highly demanding tasks assumed by managers of Austrian companies have become even more difficult and fraught with risks.

The book illustrates how directors of Austrian GmbH (Private Limited) and AG (Public Limited) companies conduct business correctly in times of COVID-19. Based on different case scenarios, the book offers a practical overview of important legal issues relating to the corona crisis as well as associated risks of liability, and provides an overview of possibilities for protection against – or relief from – liability.
