FEHA Statute of Limitations ("SOL") Changed from 1 to 3 years as of 1-1-2020.

Effective January 1, 2020 the Statute of Limitations for actions filed under the California Fair Employment & Housing Act ("FEHA") has been changed from 1 year to 3 years. California Government Code Section 12960 (AB 9 2019).


Under the FEHA, California employees will now have 3 years to file charges of discrimination, harassment and retaliation with the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing ("DFEH").


HOW TO FILE: In order to preserve your rights to file a lawsuit under the FEHA, you must first file a charge with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) within three (3) years of the date of the alleged violation. Then, the employee must receive a right-to-sue letter from the DFEH before filing a lawsuit. This process is further discussed in the "Practice Areas" above. The DFEH's website offers guidance as to your rights, including a complaint form and step-by-step instructions as to how to complete the form. We recommend that you consult with an attorney before completing the form.
