Effective 1/1/2020, a new anti-sexual harassment law (AB 749) will provide that “an agreement to settle an employment dispute shall not contain a provision prohibiting, preventing, or otherwise restricting a settling party that is an aggrieved person from obtaining future employment with the employer against which the aggrieved person has filed a claim.” The legislation is particularly relevant for employees who have filed sexual harassment complaints against their employers; as part of their settlement agreements, employers have previously been able to prohibit victims of sexual harassment from working for them — or any related entities — again.
