DFEH (Department of Fair Employment and Housing Complaint – 3 Year Statue of Limitations)

AB (Assembly Bill) 9 

  • Expands 1 year SOL (Statute of Limitations) to 3 years. 
  • Employees must file a DFEH com- plaint prior to filing a lawsuit in court for discrimination, harassment or re- taliation. 
  • Now they have 3 years from the date of the last wrong act to do so and then another year from that filing to file a suit in court 
  • This greatly expands the amount of claims that can be brought against employers
