Calif. Dept. of Industrial Relations Releases Guidance on Workers’ Comp Executive Order

On May 6, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Executive Order N-62-20, which provides that under certain circumstances it is presumed that workers who contract a COVID-19-related illness between March 19 and July 5, 2020, have done so at work and are thus eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.

The Calif. Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) has issued guidance related to the implementation of the order.
