Hanwha Removes ISC West Coronavirus Waiver

By John Honovich, Published Mar 02, 2020, 08:12am EST

Hanwha Techwin has removed a waiver that would have put any liability for contracting Coronavirus at ISC West on its employees.

Last week, the waiver created a stir privately amongst industry salespeople as fears over and cases of coronavirus have risen, while ISC West says they will not cancel amidst exhibitors, such as Avigilon, dropping out. Indeed, last week, a related question was asked: If I Die From Coronavirus Caught At ISC West, Can I Sue My Employer?

Inside this note, we examine:

  • Hanwha Techwin's waiver
  • Removal of waiver
  • No Hanwha South Korean Staff coming to ISC West
  • Legality unclear, Morale impact clearly bad
  • Overall concerns of employees having to work at ISC West
