Expert Analysis: Limiting Employer Liability For Secondhand Virus Exposure

As businesses across our nation reopen and Americans return to their jobs, employers are asking important questions about the liabilities they may face. If Congress does not pass – or the courts do not enforce – some kind of protection for COVID-19 exposure claims, employers must consider ways to limit their liability, according to an expert analysis that ran in Law 360 by Diane Flannery, Chris Michalik, Andrew Gann and Scott Thomas, four defense lawyers at McGuireWoods.

Many businesses are already looking for ways to limit direct exposure to the virus for their employees and their customers. As Flannery, Michalik, Gann and Thomas point out in their analysis, businesses must also consider what could happen if an employee is exposed to COVID-19 at work and proceeds to expose their families, friends or roommates.
