1.5 Sexual harassment claims filed each day vs. federal agencies

The federal government is America's largest employer with nearly 2,000 agencies. Unfortunately, the federal workplace is far from immune from harassment complaints. Like other employers, it saw a surge in complaints after the #MeToo movement ramped up. Both sexual and non-sexual harassment complaints rose between FY 2015 and FY 2018, with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) receiving as many as 1.5 reports, on average, per day.

Yes. Whenever an employee makes a good faith complaint of discrimination, employers are prohibited by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act from retaliating against the employee. This also includes workers who assist others in making such a complaint, opposing any FEHA violation, or even complaining of actions that turn out not to be prohibited by the FEHA, as long as the complaint was made in good faith.
