ILR, U.S. Chamber Continue To Push For Liability Protections For Businesses

The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce continue to argue in favor of targeted, timely and temporary liability protections that will help put the economy back on track. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, ILR and nearly 500 additional organizations recently wrote to congressional leaders urging them to include liability protections in the next coronavirus bill, according to a report in Yahoo Finance.

“It is top of mind for not just businesses, but really a whole host of entities across our country,” Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told Yahoo Finance in an interview. “Employers across the country face a lot of uncertainty — the COVID crisis, the economic uncertainty — liability uncertainty adds to that confusion for employers.”

School districtscolleges and Republican governors have also sent letters to Congress pressing for the inclusion of some form of lawsuit protections.
