Pending Legislation to Lengthen the Statute Of Limitations on Discrimination Claims
SUMMARY: A bill is working its way through the California Legislature that would extend to three years the period within which a person must file a lawsuit alleging employment discrimination. (AB 9.)
TAKEAWAYS: Businesses may wish to ensure they preserve personnel and other employment-related files, including emails, texts and coaching or disciplinary communications, even those given informally and review their record retention policies.
