CALIFORNIA IS THE RISKIEST STATE FOR EMPLOYEE LAWSUITS
According to a new study released by Hixcox detailing the best and worst areas for employee lawsuits in the United States, California is the riskiest state for employee lawsuits. Businesses in California face substantially higher risk of being sued by their employees compared to the national average.
California has a 42% higher chance than the national average of being sued by an employee. District of Columbia (32%), Illinois (26%), Alabama (25%), and Mississippi (19%).
In California, our state laws allow, and even encourage employment lawsuits, and these laws greatly increase the risk that any given business will face an employment lawsuit in a given year.
