Last month, a California court ruled that an employer could be held responsible for so-called "take-home" asbestos, which can allegedly sicken family members after staying on a worker's clothing. Should employers be on the hook for secondhand asbestos exposure?


Answers Votes
Yes. Employers have long known the hazards of asbestos, and should have been providing better clean-up facilities and more regulation long ago. 54%
Yes, but only in new cases moving forward. Employers simply weren't educated enough in decades past about the dangers of take-home asbestos. 24%
No. Employees are responsible for what happens in their own homes. 22%
