Workers’ Compensation and COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on America’s economy, health care, and workers’ compensation systems. If you or a loved one has had adverse experiences related to COVID-19 exposure at work, you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation.
Front-line health care workers such as nurses, doctors, and aides, as well as firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement officers, are among the individuals with the highest risk, but all Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers as identified in Governor Newsom’s March 19, 2020, Executive Order who may have been exposed to COVID-19 as a result of their employment have potential claims for infection with COVID-19.
