Jackson Lewis: Partner Can Sue Partnership for Retaliation under California's FEHA

This Law Firm Publication by Jackson Lewis LLP discusses the California First District Court of Appeal's May 16, 2012 decision in Fitzsimons v. California Emergency Physicians Medical Group, holding a partner in a medical practice can sue the practice for retaliation under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Although the plaintiff was not protected from discrimination or harassment under the FEHA because she did not have an employment relationship with the practice, the court found that the FEHA's plain language prohibited partnerships from retaliating against any person opposing or reporting the sexual harassment of an employee.
