Program Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic has spawned a new variant of personal injury litigation associated with alleged workplace transmission of the virus. Employees or their surviving family members have filed lawsuits seeking injunctive relief and compensatory, economic, and punitive damages against their employers for alleged failure to take adequate measures to prevent the workplace transmission of COVID-19.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

• Whether workplace transmission of COVID-19 is subject to workers’ compensation exclusivity or OSHA jurisdiction?
• What, if any, tort immunities may apply?
• When the statute of limitations runs?
• What steps may be taken by employers to mitigate the risk of litigation?
