I have personally represented injured workers with Covid-19 whose employer denied the claim. These are health care workers, safety officers and other employees. I have one employee now who was a school bus driver. The employer advised that "95% of the transportation department is positive for covid." This claim has been denied.
The presumption is necessary to allow workers' to obtain benefits when they go to work during a pandemic and they contract covid. Covid is not over. The pandemic continues. If we are going to ask our workers to work during the pandemic they need to be covered.
This presumption needs to be extended.
