Legal Question in Employment Law in California

I live in California. If I want to hire a maid that's unlicensed, can I have her sign an agreement saying that we're not liable if she injures herself while working in our home?

No, but check with your homeowner's insurance carrier. Most policies provide worker's compensation coverage for household employees like maids and nannies.

You're liable.

Get WCAB insurance, as is legally required.
