More than 100 Local Chambers of Commerce Working with the Florida Chamber’s COVID Liability Protection Coalition to Protect Local Businesses from Frivolous Lawsuits

Local Chamber Coalition Fighting to Pass Common Sense COVID Liability Protections

TALLAHASSEE, FL. (February 15, 2021)—The Florida Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that more than 100 local Chambers of Commerce have joined the Florida Chamber’s COVID Liability Protection coalition. Providing certainty for Florida job creators with COVID-19 liability protections is key to safely getting Florida’s economy back on track. These protections are a necessary component to provide certainty that if businesses are following health and safety guidelines, they can fully re-open, add jobs, and engage in commerce without the fear of frivolous lawsuits.

“At the onset of the pandemic, the Florida Chamber started having conversations with our members across Florida, lawmakers, and the Executive branch about the need to support liability protections for Florida businesses that are working hard to reopen safely while following public health protocols and guidelines,” said Florida Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Mark Wilson. “It’s promising to see the business community unite for Florida’s job creators as we rebound Florida’s economy and grow from the 17th largest economy in the world to the 10th largest by 2030. With a current bottom 5 legal climate, the last thing Florida and its employers need is a tsunami of frivolous COVID lawsuits that will consume time, money and resources that would be better spent on creating more jobs, safety and investing back in the business.”

In addition to the more than 100 local Chambers of Commerce, the Florida Chamber also has strong Florida voter support for COVID liability protections. A recent statewide poll conducted by the Chamber shows likely Florida voters overwhelmingly support COVID-19 liability protections for businesses if the business made efforts to follow governmental public health guidelines, with 74 percent favoring protections. When liability protection is extended to include doctors, hospitals and nursing homes, support increases to 78 percent – an additional four points.
