NFIB just issued a set of “Liability Protection Principles” intended to protect small businesses from the threat of unfounded lawsuits as they begin to reopen. A survey released this week showed that nearly 70% of small business owners are concerned about liability claims increases.
NFIB State Director Nathan Humphrey said liability protection is especially needed for Georgia’s small businesses.
“Last year, Georgia made the American Tort Reform Foundation’s list of judicial hellholes for the first time ever. Small businesses were devastated by the shutdown. Georgia businesses are beginning to reopen, but even one frivolous lawsuit could force a small business to close its doors for good and leave its employees without jobs.”
