Coalition Calls For Temporary COVID Liability Protections

The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, along with more than 500 business organizations, sent a letter to Capitol Hill today calling on Congress to pass the SAFE TO WORK Act.

The coalition said the “the timely, targeted, and temporary liability relief provisions” included in the bill “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.”

The letter says that unfair COVID-19-related litigation “could ultimately cripple businesses, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations both large and small.” The “temporary and targeted” protections in the SAFE TO WORK Act “are balanced and would ensure that unfair lawsuits against those who work to comply with applicable governmental guidelines do not impede the American people’s health, social, and economic recovery” and are time-limited so they are not permanent changes to law.
