California has a clear public policy against discrimination and also requires that employers to take steps to prevent discrimination from occurring.
California Government Code §12940(k) states:
It is an unlawful employment practice, unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification, or, except where based upon applicable security regulations established by the United States or the State of California for an employer, labor organization, employment agency, apprenticeship training program, or any training program leading to employment, to fail to take all reasonable steps necessary to prevent discrimination and harassment from occurring.
If you believe that you are a victim of discrimination and your employer failed to take reasonable steps to prevent the discrimination, you need to act quickly. Please take advantage of our FREE online case submission below and call us today to start a conversation.
