House GOP bill would block lawsuits by workers sickened with virus 

A forthcoming House GOP bill would bar workers who fall ill with coronavirus from suing their employers, so long as the company complies with state and federal law as it reopens for business amid loosening health restrictions.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio), said legislation he will introduce this week would give complying business immunity from civil suits brought by employees who contract coronavirus after returning to the workplace.

…Democrats previously agreed to limit the legal liability of manufacturers of certain protective equipment in an earlier coronavirus relief package.
