    The business owner is already not liable if you get a cold or the flu or measles or polio or pneumonia in their shop.

    You can try, but it will probably not hold up in court.  It would be deemed against public policy.

    A less controversial example is when an expensive restaurant offers a coat check facility where an employee takes your coat.  To say that the restaurant is not responsible for theft or damage to your coat has been tested in court and failed.

      In MA, even if you TRY to enforce things like that, it will just get you sued for triple damages and to pay the plaintiff's attorneys' fees.

    A sign that says, basically "exempt from law" does nothing.

    You can put up whatever sign you want.

    There are zero signs that will protect a business from negligent or non-compliant behavior and that includes protection from employees as well.

    Yes, yes you can put up such a sign. This will not absolve you from the responsibility of complying whith all the regulations in your area - at least not in the UK.
