Recent Case: Caldera v. Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
Under California law, not only is sexual harassment unlawful, but other forms of harassment are unlawful as well, including harassment based on one's disability. Last month, in Caldera v. Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, 25 Cal.App.5th 31 (2018), the California Court of Appeal affirmed a jury award of $500,000, which was awarded to a prison guard who was mocked or mimicked at least a dozen times over a period of two years because of his stutter.
