Take Action Today: SB 213 - Oppose
Take Action today to oppose SB 213 (Cortese) which creates a workers’ compensation presumption for hospital employees who provide direct patient care, with infectious disease, cancer, musculoskeletal injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, respiratory disease, including COVID-19, claims. SB 213 failed to pass last year by just 1 vote. The bill is still on the Senate Floor and must be passed by January 31. If passed it will move to the Assembly.
- Creates a new presumption beyond COVID-19
- Increases workers' compensation premiums significantly
- Places an unreasonable and unnecessary mandate on hospitals
- Sets a dangerous precedent
