Video: Coronavirus & Workers’ Compensation: Your Questions Answered

In this video, Gregory Lois provides an overview of how potential coronavirus claims are handled under the New Jersey, New York, and Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Acts! This video is from a live presentation on March 9, 2020.

In this video, Greg provides answers to common questions, such as:

  • What are the state’s laws regarding the compensability of exposure to the virus? When would it be covered, when would it not be covered?
  • If an employee tests positive and an employer shuts down work for two weeks for quarantine, is there any WC coverage afforded to quarantined employees who are not sick with the virus?
  • If an employee tests positive, does the WC policy cover the employer testing employees for the virus?
