COVID-19 while on the job

Posted on

If you contracted the Coronavirus (COVID-19) while on the job, you may be entitled to Florida Workers Compensation Benefits. On March 30, the Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) directed the Division of Risk Management to provide workers’ compensation coverage to state employees who are fighting COVID-19. The directive provides coverage for state officials whose responsibilities require them to interface with individuals who are potentially infected with the coronavirus. Florida law already provides for compensation for employees who have suffered from an “occupational disease,” which can be interpreted to include COVID-19. Call today for a free initial consultation. We are committed to helping our front-line workers who put their health on the line to protect and serve our community.
