In this episode:
Show Notes:
  1. Untenable: Incapable of being defended or justified.
  2. Debt Standstill: An agreement among creditors and the debtor for a temporary pause on debt payments.
  3. Bounce Cheque: A non-sufficient funds check that cannot be processed because there isn’t enough money in the account to clear it.

Questions:
  1. I have an entertainment company that has been operating for the past five years, everything was going fine until the pandemic hit. And I have been forced to let go of employees without paying their salaries and end of service. I've also given cheque to suppliers which have now bounced. I have reached to a point where I'm not sure what to do as the company's current income cannot sustain the liabilities it's currently facing. So what is your advice?
  2. We live in a busy Dubai neighborhood and I see many people on the weekends carelessly wearing their masks and not sanitizing. My area has a lot of young and old people. Is it my duty to report these people? And what's the legal way to enforce mask wearing?
