AGC Seeks Construction Contractor COVID-19 Liability Protections

Also Fighting Unfair Legal Presumptions of Work-Contracted COVID-19

AGC is working to secure targeted and reasonable liability protections against legal claims arising from the current pandemic to protect construction firms following recognized safety and health protocols to guard against the spread of COVID-19. In addition, AGC is working to bar legal presumptions—which have begun appearing in some states in the context of workers compensation claims—that a construction employee with COVID-19 contracted the virus from exposure while at work. The House of Representative’s latest $3 trillion pandemic relief bill provides no protections in either of these arenas. AGC is working with key members of the Senate to secure these objectives in the next enacted relief bill.
