COVID-19 Liability

COVID-19 Liability


The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented liability exposure issues for California businesses and employers. In particular, for essential businesses who have stepped up to provide services, goods, and facilities during the crisis, there is mounting concern about the threat of frivolous litigation alleging these businesses are responsible for coronavirus exposure.

To encourage and support critical response efforts, the state needs to provide liability protections to all industry sectors providing critical services, goods, and facilities. CJAC and a large coalition of business organizations are advocating for California’s elected leaders to step up and take action on behalf of businesses and nonprofits.

California businesses are in survival mode, yet they are working in amazing and heroic ways to respond to the crisis. They should not be punished with frivolous lawsuits that attempt to capitalize on this crisis. Our businesses and the economy cannot sustain further damage.
