  • On January 1, 2003, two major changes in California law went into effect, both of which will impact California employers. First, the statute of limitations period for filing suit on a "personal injury" action has been extended from one year to two years. The second major change is that 75 days notice is now required on a motion for summary judgment, as opposed to 28 days as in the past.
