Can I get workers’ compensation for COVID?

In some cases, New Jersey essential employees are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they contract COVID-19 at work. Governor Phil Murphy signed a new law in September 2020 to help essential employees who contract COVID-19. This law created a rebuttable presumption of workers compensation coverage for COVID-19 cases.

The law places the burden of proving the employee did not contract the virus in the workplace on the employer. Contact Petrillo & Goldberg today to see if you might qualify for benefits after contracting COVID-19 at work.
