WCJC Joins Support for Federal “SAFE TO WORK Act.”

On July 30th, the Wisconsin Civil Justice Council signed on in support with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce urging Congress to create COVID-19 liability protections for businesses and schools who comply with applicable government health and safety standards. You can read the full letter of support here.

As the letter noted: “These crucial protections would safeguard healthcare workers, providers, and facilities, as well as businesses, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions against unfair lawsuits so they can continue to contribute to a safe and effective economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The bill is being pushed by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for inclusion in the next round of federal COVID-19 legislation.
