Sustain the Business
Business Interruption Insurance is an important type of coverage in an insurance policy for the sole purpose of covering for loss of income. It is covered to give another chance to reopen the business in the future.
Both policies mentioned below play a considerable role in navigating contractual obligations and legal strategies to recover from the loss of income and the expenses required to be paid during the pandemic.
In a contract agreement, there are legal duties that employers and employees are responsible for and are called contractual obligations. Force majeure is a way to defend from contractual obligations. It arises when parties are in an unforeseen reasonable event that prevents them from performing their contractual obligation.
This may be used against reasons that surround the COVID-19 challenges the business owners are facing. Safety measures were applied everywhere, and lockdowns and business closures occurred. It is not within the control of business owners that their business is gravely affected. Therefore, any existing contractual obligations are deferred and impossible to perform.
During and in the aftermath of this unexpected disaster, restaurants and hotels are inevitably pressured to find ways to handle limited cash flows and stop the bleeding losses to restore or reduce the damage due to their losses of profits, properties, and brand value.
