Ian Stewart (Partner-Los Angeles) and Jana Farmer (Partner-White Plains) co-authored "Managing Employer Risk in the Age of the Coronavirus," which appeared in two parts in PropertyCasualty360.com and Law.com on April 9–10, 2020. Ian and Jana note that, given the risks of civil liability for exposing members of the general public and their families to COVID-19, companies that address federal and state worker safety obligations could see fewer claims and fare better in litigation. They also examine the specific elements of an infectious disease and response plan and address some of the possible lawsuits that could arise from COVID-19 exposures.
