CHA Alert Urges Senators to Oppose Bill That Would Create a Workers’ Compensation Presumption

For CEOs, government relations executives

On Feb. 17, CHA issued an Alert urging hospitals to write and call their state senator and asking them to oppose Senate Bill (SB) 213 (Cortese, D-San Jose). This bill would create a rebuttable presumption in the workers’ compensation system that an infectious disease, musculoskeletal injury, or respiratory disease arose out of work for any hospital direct patient care worker.  

CHA has developed a template letter and key messages for members’ use. Please send a copy of your letter to Dawn Vicari at [email protected]. Hospitals are asked to contact their senator by noon (PT) on March 1; contact information can be found on the state Legislature’s site
