Highest-Ever Education Funding in Proposed State Budget
Gov. Gavin Newsom's proposed State Budget presented earlier this month includes a record $89.2 billion for K-12 schools and community colleges next year, as well as 3 percent more for the University of California and California State University. In addition, he's proposed $4.6 billion for summer school and extra learning time to address academic setbacks that many students are dealing with during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Q: WHAT ARE MY LEGAL REMEDIES IF I CONTRACT COVID-19 AT WORK?
Your legal remedies would likely be limited to those available under the workers’ compensation laws, which provide the “exclusive remedy” for workplace injury or illness in almost every state. What that means is that you usually cannot bring traditional tort claims (like negligence) against your employer to recover for workplace injuries or illnesses. Instead, your remedy is limited to the benefits available under workers’ compensation, which typically includes medical expenses, partial lost wages, and death benefits.
