SEMA Joins Call for U.S. Congress to Enact COVID-19 Safe Harbor Protections for Businesses

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

SEMA has joined forces with the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) in requesting the U.S. Congress to enact reasonable COVID-19 liability protections for businesses. SEMA members are urged to contact their lawmakers with the same request.

The tort reform measure would provide limited and rationale safe harbors during the current emergency and period of recovery. While not shielding companies from all liability, it would provide tailored protection as businesses act in good faith to follow available guidelines for protecting workers. Lawmakers will be asked to include reasonable tort reform measures as part of the next stimulus relief package to be enacted in the coming weeks.
