California Supreme Court

Employment

Pollock v. Tri-Modal Distribution Services, Inc. (2021) _ Cal.5th _ , 2021 WL 3137429: The California Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeal. The California Supreme Court held that the statute of limitations accrues, and begins to run in a failure to promote case brought under the harassment provision of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA; Government Code, sections 12940(j), 12960), at the point when an employee knows or reasonably should know of the employer's allegedly unlawful refusal to promote the employee. The Court of Appeal's decision was reversed because it concluded that the statute of limitations began to run when the employer offered the promotion to Leticia Gonzalez and she accepted it, but it did not discuss when plaintiff knew or should have known that she was denied the promotion, nor did it discuss whether defendant Michael Kelso, in asserting his statute of limitations defense, established any facts concerning plaintiff's actual or constructive knowledge. The California Supreme Court also ruled that Government Code section 12965(b)'s directive that a prevailing FEHA defendant "shall not be awarded fees and costs unless the court finds the action was frivolous, unreasonable, or groundless when brought, or the plaintiff continued to litigate after it clearly became so," applies to an award of costs on appeal.
