The coronavirus pandemic has changed the legal landscape for most businesses, including mobility and rental car operations — yet despite the disruptions to daily life and the economy, the legal system did not shut down. This seminar will discuss several important decisions impacting the car rental industry throughout 2020, including potential coronavirus-related legal issues. Topics include: compliance with rental laws and limiting customer contact in view of customer COVID-19 concerns and related legal considerations; types of claims that might arise from an alleged exposure to the coronavirus and the use of waivers to mitigate risk; federal and state legislation limiting liability for coronavirus-related claims; legal considerations for on-demand rental operations and similar platforms, and others.
