Updated COVID Stance

July 30th, 2021|

With the latest resurgence of Covid 19 due to the Delta variant and the accompanying changes in policy direction from the CDC we wanted to reaffirm how liability coverage as provided by the ICRMT will respond in the event of Covid related suits.

The ICRMT does not have an exclusion for Virus or Bacteria (COVID) under the primary liability policies.  We understand that other programs/carriers in Illinois do have this exclusion and are informing their insureds that they will 100% not have coverage for any COVID related claims.  ICRMT will look at each claim individually and determine coverage.  After legal review, the ICRMT would not base a decision to deny coverage solely because a district made the decision whether to require masks or not, or to implement other recommendations pertaining to COVID-19.

However, the ICRMT may have the right to issue a coverage denial on other grounds including but not limited to, the failure to adhere to the Governor’s Executive Orders, legislative enactments or other regulations mandated by public health authorities at the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health, or local health departments.  We are making the distinction between suggestions and recommendations vs requirements and mandates.  If wearing a mask is suggested but non required or mandated by governmental authorities, coverage would not be impacted.  Failure to comply with a requirement or mandate would result in a coverage denial as the policy does exclude willful and wonton actions that go against federal, state, or local laws and regulations.

New law on use of criminal conviction record in employment decisions

April 19th, 2021|

Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 101-0656 into law last week. This law limits the ability of employers to use an applicant or employee’s criminal conviction record as a basis for an adverse employment decision. The law requires employers to first consider whether the conviction bears a substantial relationship to the employment position or whether employing the person would pose a substantial risk. If the employer makes a preliminary decision that the conviction is disqualifying, the employer must provide the individual with notice and an opportunity to provide further information before making a final decision. Jane May of OKGC has prepared a memo for distribution to ICRMT members which explains the law. You can download the memo by clicking here. Please reach out to your risk management consultant with questions.
