Featured Employment Case
Wellpoint Health Networks, Inc. v. Superior Ct., 59 Cal. App. 4th 110, 68 Cal. Rptr. 2d 844 (1997)
A former employee brought action against employer alleging employment discrimination and retaliation in violation of Fair Employment and Housing Act. After sustaining employer’s demurrer to second amended complaint, the Superior Court, Los Angeles County, No. BC138067, Mary Ann Murphy, J., granted employee’s motion to compel evidence. Employer sought writ of mandate requesting stay. The Court of Appeal, Baron, J., held that: (1) attorney–client privilege and work product doctrine may apply to attorney retained to investigate employee claims of discrimination; and (2) issue of whether employer waived attorney–client and attorney work product privileges by raising defense of adequate investigation in employment discrimination action could not be determined after demurrer to second amended complaint had been sustained. The Court explained in its opinion: “In this case we are asked to resolve two issues: (1) whether a law firm’s prelitigation investigation into the circumstances surrounding the claims of an employee who may have suffered discriminatory treatment is protected by the attorney-client privilege and/or the attorney work product doctrine, and (2) if so, whether the employer waives these protections when it raises the investigation as a defense to the employee’s ensuing discrimination lawsuit. The trial court ruled that a prelitigation investigation of an employee’s discrimination claims did not result in attorney-client communications or attorney work product and so did not reach the second issue. After review of the record, we conclude that no substantial evidence supports the trial court’s ruling concerning the inapplicability of the privilege and the work product doctrine. We further hold that resolution of the waiver issue is dependent on the claims asserted in the complaint and the defenses raised thereto. As there was neither a complaint nor an answer on file when the trial court made its ruling, the order compelling discovery was premature. We, therefore, instruct the trial court to vacate its order requiring production of the investigative files prepared on behalf of petitioners. We do this without prejudice to the employee’s ability to bring a motion to compel production of the subject documents at a later stage in the proceedings.”
