Since the Governors’ Declaration of Emergency, our attorney, Keith Semple, has been volunteering his time to the push for greater worker protection during Corona virus pandemic. Keith is the co-chair of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Workers’ Compensation section, and has represented OTLA in working on these issues with a broad coalition of organizations.  In the past two weeks, Keith has followed the work of two legislative committees in their discussion of issues that will affect the rights of injured workers and consumers going forward.  We are all hopeful that the concerns of workers will get the attention they deserve as the legislature takes up the many important issues Oregon is confronting.
