Business Owner or Manager.
It may not be easy being an employer in California. Disgruntled employees and their big shot lawyers use all sorts of laws to get even with employers. Plus, California jurors are famously generous to fired employees. California lawyers are notorious for using state laws to sue employers in all kinds of creative ways-even if the employer complies perfectly with federal law.
Make even one little employment mistake, and your organization could be making the evening news and every newspaper for miles around.
Here’s why: Attorneys used to be satisfied with suing employers under well defined federal laws like the ADA, FLSA and the FMLA. But Congress cut the amount of money employees could win in federal cases (and that the attorney’s share).
So, To Make A Bigger Haul, Lawyers Are Coming After California Employers
Through State And Even Local Laws.
The bad news: Those lawyers can use mountains of laws against you with absolutely NO limit on how much a generous jury can award to disgruntled employees. Worse yet: Today’s, litigious workers and super aggressive lawyers aren’t just going after companies-they are also suing supervisors, managers and owners personally.
