WHAT ARE THE TIME LIMITS FOR FILING A COMPLAINT FOR DISCRIMINATION AND RETALIATION WITH THE DSLE?
The majority of California Labor Code Statutes allow six months from the occurrence of the adverse action of discrimination and retaliation to file a complaint with the Labor Commissioner.
If you file a complaint under Labor Code Sections 230(c) or 230.1, you have one year to file from the time of the adverse action.
If you file a complaint under Labor Code Section 1197.5, you have two years from the time of the adverse action.
But, if you file a complaint under Health and Safety Code 1596.881, you have 90 days from the occurrence of the adverse action to file a complaint.
