Yeah . . . no. Unless they died and even then it would not be easy as they probably had underlying conditions, would be hard to prove causation, etc. And, no one forces you to go to work. You can choose not to go to work.Businesses that refused to shut down and their employees got sick.
It's 'Merica, people will think of things.
These wouldn’t be workplace lawsuits, as you’re thinking of them. Unless someone dies there’s not enough money in them to get most lawyers interested and even then there would be almost insurmountable causation issues to overcome. It would be near impossible to prove where the decedent actually got infected with the virus, and then you’d also have to prove that the employer knew that his or her place of business was spreading the virus, and then that the person actually died from the virus, not to mention other issues. Of course you are free to file a ridiculous lawsuit but you won’t succeed.Yeah that's always a great defense and the reason that workplace lawsuits never happen.
