California Board of Equalization Faces $50M Claim Over Mold-related Illness

The California Board of Equalization (BOE) is facing a new claim filed by their employees, who say that the mold at the BOE headquarters has been causing them respiratory problems, skin rashes and other mold-related illness.

The claim is not the first one; a previous lawsuit regarding mold-related illness in BOE employees involved 31 plaintiffs and was resolved back in 2012.

This new claim was brought by an associate tax auditor with BOE, Racquel Raichart, on behalf of herself and the other employees. Attorney Anthony Perez, who filed the claim with the state of California on July 2, has accused the BOE management of misleading the employees by telling them that the building was mold free. “People continue to show problems of mold exposure. You have management stating to employees that the building is safe, and that remediation has been successful. That is untrue,” said Perez.

The claim seeks at least $50 million for the medical care and treatment of the employees. Perez said that in the next few months, a lawsuit will be filed Sacramento Superior Court.
