BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

California senate passes hospital worker presumption

California capitol

The California Senate on Monday passed a bill that would create a presumption that certain conditions and injuries are compensable for hospital workers.

The Senate voted 21-9 to pass S.B. 213, which would create a presumption that certain cancers, musculoskeletal injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder and some infectious diseases and respiratory diseases — including COVID-19 — arose out of employment for hospital workers providing direct patient care.

S.B. 213 moves to the Assembly for more hearings.
