Featured Employment Case

Rojo v. Kliger, 52 Cal. 3d 65, 801 P.2d 373 (1990)

Women employees brought an action against male co-employees and their employer for sexual harassment in violation of Fair Employment Practices Act and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The Superior Court, Los Angeles County granted defendants’ motion for summary judgment, and denied employees’ request for leave to amend complaint to plead cause of action for wrongful discharge in violation of public policy. The employees appealed. After vacating on rehearing the opinion at 252 Cal.Rptr. 605, the Court of Appeal, 257 Cal.Rptr. 158,reversed. Review was granted by the California Supreme Court which superseded the opinion of the Court of Appeal. The Supreme Court, Panelli, J., held that: (1) The Fair Employment Practices Act does not supplant common law claims relating to employment discrimination; (2) employees did not have to exhaust administrative process under Act before resorting to judicial relief for nonstatutory causes of action; and (3) sex discrimination in employment might support claim of tortious discharge in contravention of public policy, and thus employees should have been allowed to amend their complaint to plead such cause of action.  The Court explained that an employee may elect to waive statutory cause of action and remedies under Fair Employment Practices Act and proceed directly to court on common law claims, or alternatively may pursue both administrative and judicial avenues, either sequentially or simultaneously, in latter case amending complaint to join statutory cause of action once Department has issued right-to-sue letter. The Court held that the claim for tortious discharge in violation of public policy was proper, and that the employees thus should have been allowed to amend their complaint to plead cause of action for wrongful discharge, where employees asserted that they were terminated for refusing to engage in nonconsensual sexual acts, and asserted that they were discharged in retaliation for attempting to exercise fundamental right to be free from sexual assault and harassment.
