Yes they may work well but consider the risks.
The Court of Appeals, however, reversed the trial court's decision and noted that California law says a person who hires an unlicensed individual to perform duties that require a license is in fact an "employer." Once an employment relationship is created, the hiring individual may be sued for any injuries sustained on the job. There is no workers' compensation protection for the homeowner in this case because Mendoza had not worked enough hours to be covered by it. The Appeals court then sent the case back to trial to determine the extent of the homeowner's liability to the injured worker.
