A West Virginia bill, introduced Thursday, would make an employer responsible if an employee dies from a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The Senate bill, SB578, would hold the employer accountable if an employee would become ill, injured or died from a mandated COVID-19 vaccine.

The bill says it would also hold the business responsible if a mandate is enforced that requires an employee to be vaccinated to retain employment.

The bill was introduced by Mark Maynard, (R)-Wayne and has been referred to the Committee on the Judiciary and then to the Committee on Finance.
