Senate Bill 1159 and AB 685 stand to be a huge consideration in workers’ compensation cases due to COVID-19. Please review our “Key Highlights of the COVID Presumption Law,” and contact us if you have questions about what the law means for you.
SRTK Shareholders Aaron Hemmings and Jerry Rempel presented “Good Faith Personnel Action Defense” on September 9th, 2020 as part of the Valley Industrial Claims Association (VICA) three-day virtual “Summer Circus” webinar event. The event provided participants with the opportunity to earn up to 6 hours of MCLE and CEU across the six individual programs.
The three bills under review to establish workers’ compensation presumptions for COVID-19 cases are still pending discussion, with more proposed amendments expected and negotiations anticipated to continue leading up to closure of the legislature’s 2020 session on Monday, August 30th. Discussion of the bills stalled when Wednesday’s floor session was canceled and the Senate closed temporarily due to a member testing positive for COVID-19.
