School District COVID-19 Immunity Included in Unemployment Bill

By John Forester | February 26, 2021

From The Legal Side . . .

In its most recent School Law FYI, the BoardmanClark Law Firm focuses on the Unemployment Compensation bill signed into law by Governor Tony Evers on Thursday, February 25th.  Media reports on this new law has largely overlooked the fact that the bill includes COVID-19 immunity from civil liability for school districts and other entities.  As you know, the COVID-19 immunity provisions were a major part of the SAA’s Statutory Flexibility Agenda.

The SAA regularly receives these legal updates and we believe this is valuable information for SAA members.  We are distributing this update to SAA members with the permission of the BoardmanClark Law Firm.  The information in this update is no substitute for consulting with your district legal counsel, and we encourage you to do so.
