New Laws focus on Harassment and Discrimination protections for 2019
California recently enacted AB 2770 which provide provisions that protect Employers and Accusers/Victims of Sexual Harassment from liability by an alleged harasser after a complaint has been filed.
AB 2770 protects employees who report sexual harassment, based on credible evidence and without malice. This ensures they won’t be liable for injury to the alleged harasser’s reputation. As such it now protects the communications between the employer and victims/witnesses. An employer can now reveal on a job reference without fear from a defamation lawsuit.
Take time to investigate what you would do in these cases. Knowing what to do can save you time and money.
