Beginning on January 1st, 2020, California Assembly Bill AB 9 will give workers, what was just 1 year, three times as long to file claims alleging California employment discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Now, workers will have a full three years under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) to file their complaints.
Although the law broadly applies to all forms of harassment, retaliation, and discrimination, the #MeToo movement was as the forefront of the change to allow victims of sexual harassment or assault more time to file their grievances.
If you think you’ve been a victim of on-the-job harassment, discrimination or retaliation, it’s best to gather evidence and write down pertinent information as quickly as possible while it’s still fresh in your mind.
