Government Code Claims: The Claims Presentation Process and Government Code Immunities
Date: Thursday, April 14, 2022
Time: 12 pm
Location: Online Webinar
MCLE: One Hour General Participatory Credit
Did you know that prior to 1963 each government entity had its own specific process for making a claim against them? To address the confusion and create a standardized procedure across the state for claims against public entities caused the California legislature passed the California Tort Claims Act, now known as the Government Claims Act. This act allows the aggrieved to file a complaint and the public agency to consider and remedy the complaint without having to file a formal lawsuit.
This hour-long webinar will provide an overview of the Government Code claim process as well as the immunities provided to public agencies and employees under the Government Code.
