I have the code below. Shouldnt string.IsNullOrEmpty catch if the value is null or empty? It throws an error that the object reference is not set or null. How can I recode this?

             if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(Session["BusinessId"].ToString())) //this line
            return int.Parse(Session["BusinessId"].ToString());
