Congress Must Enact Protections For Businesses Following CDC And State Guidelines

As stores, restaurants, and offices reopen in some parts of the country following coronavirus shutdowns, businesses are worried they’ll see an uptick in lawsuits from sick workers and customers according to a report in CNBC.

Thomas Ward, owner of Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa in Orlando, Florida, said he’s taken the proper safety precautions at his restaurant, but some customers continue to show up without masks. Ward fears this could lead to an employee catching the coronavirus and, later on, a lawsuit alleging he didn’t do enough to protect them.

Ward is featured in ILR’s new series Small Business Owners Deal with Potential COVID Lawsuits- A Video Series. The series allows you to hear directly from those who are doing everything they can to protect their employees, and customers, and shows why Congress must pass timely, targeted, and temporary protections against COVID litigation.
