Restraining order placed on identification of companies with COVID-19 cases

Suit supported by ABC of Wisconsin

A Wisconsin Judge has issued a temporary restraining order preventing the state of Wisconsin from publicly identifying companies with two or more employees that had COVID-19.

Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin has supported the lawsuit, arguing in its brief that many construction company employees wear identifying logos on their clothes and some even drove vehicles with company insignia, leaving them with “scarlet letters” that potentially could link them to contractors on the list and unfairly associate them with the coronavirus.

In an oral ruling from the bench, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Lloyd Carter blocked the release of the company names.
