Delta variant could curtail business travel
Jeff Adelson, Newport Beach, California-based co-managing shareholder of Adelson McLean APC, said employers in states with COVID-19 workers compensation presumptions — such as California — ought to be especially cautious in proceeding with business travel, as the exposures to the virus while traveling and attending meetings and conferences can be greater, leading to comp liability.
“If someone is required to travel for their job and they are in a crowded airport and in meetings and it creates a greater likelihood of transmission than the general population, then I think that it would be a compensable claim,” he said.Written by Loise Esola, Business Insurance Magazine
