RESTORE OUR REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT
HB 268 CORONAVIRUS & WORKERS’ COM ACT attempts to hold businesses liable for New Mexico workers contracting COVID through January 31, 2023. This legislation creates an environment for frivolous lawsuits, liabilities, increased workers’ compensation premiums, and further damages New Mexico’s economy at large.
There is no scientific method to prove an employee contracted COVID at their workplace or through an individual’s everyday life activities.
Essentially this act passes the responsibility of a COVID infection onto an employer with no preponderance of the evidence.
I demand that you vote NO on HB 268.
