Small businesses will be sued by jobless

“A 2007 study, commissioned by the Institute for Legal Reform, concluded that small businesses alone pay $98 billion a year because of frivolous lawsuits — money that could have been used to hire more workers, expand businesses or improve employee benefits”.

An Op-Ed from the Washington Examiner which speaks out against the “American Jobs Act” explains “This provision creates more business for trial lawyers, not small businesses, by opening the floodgates to increased litigation”.

We know all too well that the litigious culture in America is out of control.  Adding fuel to the fire by giving trial attorneys a chance to blame businesses for not hiring those who are unemployed would be disastrous to our economy and job market, and deter employers from hiring at all.
