Limitation on Discrimination and Harassment Claims

Employees will now have 3 years, instead of I year, to file claims for discrimination, harass- ment, or retaliation with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing 

  • The 1 year statute of limitations for filing a civil action after an employee files a FEHA (Fair Employment and Housing Act) complaint re- mains unchanged 
  • The law does not revise lapsed claims, however, it does extend the limitations period for claims that have accrued, but for which the prior 1 year statute of limitation has not expired
