Pas på konkurskarantæne

En konkurs behøver ikke nødvendigvis at sætte en stopper for et fremtidigt virke som selvstændig erhvervsdrivende. Man kan jo prøve igen. Hvis man ikke har styr på bogføringen og andre forpligtelser i sin virksomhed, eller hvis man ikke sørger for at ”aflevere” sin virksomhed, herunder virksomhedens bogholderi på en nogenlunde pæn måde ved konkursen, kan dette dog i en årrække til en vis grad sætte en stopper for fremtidig drift af erhvervsmæssig virksomhed. Denne artikel er ment som en oplysningsartikel, der alene fokuserer på nogle udvalgte spørgsmål i relation til konkurskarantænereglerne, idet det er forfatterens opfattelse, at mange virksomhedsejere og rådgivere ikke har kendskab til konsekvenserne af ”laden stå til”, herunder i forhold til konkurskarantænereglerne, der efterhånden har 3 år på bagen.

Court confirms importance of ABN vs ACN distinction on PPSR registrations

On The 31st of January 2017, the NSW Supreme Court confirmed that an administrative error made by Alleasing in its PPSR registrations would result in the loss of a $23 million ore crusher. The error was simple:  Alleasing had registered over its customer’s ABN rather than its ACN.

While many businesses now understand the importance of registering their rights on the PPSR, errors remain common. Some of those errors can be fatal and result in the loss of assets.

Bombay High Court – Rights of Successors to Prevail Over Those of Nominees of Shares

(Holding the view in the earlier Kokate Case as incorrect, the Division Bench of the Bombay High Court has clarified the position of law with respect to rights of nominees versus those of successors over shares of a company. The Court has held that nomination does not override the law in relation to testamentary or intestate succession, and vesting under Section 109A (of Companies Act, 1956) does not create a third mode of succession.)

The EEOC Shoots Down Employers’ Attempts at Flu Prevention

Each year between October and May, millions of people contract the flu. Recent estimates suggest that up to 111 million workdays are lost during the flu season each year — at an estimated $7 billion per year in sick days and lost productivity.[1]  In light of the significant impact the flu can have on human capital and workplace productivity, many employers – especially those with employees who frequently interact with members of the public through the course and scope of their employment, such as health care providers, retailers, and educators – are beginning to implement policies mandating flu shots for all employees. The administration of an annual flu vaccine can substantially reduce the risk of contracting the flu and spreading it to others. During the 2015-2016 flu season, the Center for Disease Control estimates that flu vaccinations prevented approximately 5.1 million illnesses and 2.5 million flu-associated medical visits. However, as discussed in our HEAL Take 5 December 2016 newsletter and last month’s blog post, a recent influx of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) lawsuits alleging religious discrimination and failure to accommodate under Title VII highlight the challenges employers face when implementing mandatory flu vaccination policies.

Supreme Court Will Resolve Class Action Waiver Split – Employment Law This Week

Featured on Employment Law This Week: The U.S. Supreme Court takes on class action waivers.

In 2012, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that class action waivers in arbitration agreements violate employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second, Fifth, and Eighth Circuits disagreed, finding that these waivers do not violate the NLRA and are enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act. More recently, the Seventh and Ninth Circuits sided with the NLRB on the issue. The Supreme Court will consider three cases in order to resolve this split, but any resolution could depend on the timing of the hearing. If the case is heard this term, before President Trump’s nominee for the vacancy on the Supreme Court is confirmed, it could end in a 4-4 tie. That would leave the law as it stands, and the split would continue.
