Periodically in our blog, we like to remind workers in the Fresno area of California that they have employee rights under the law. Anytime these rights are violated, workers in the Valley should consider taking steps to correct the violations. At the very least, drawing attention to the ways in which companies can violate employee rights is an important service to all workers.
During a three year period (2013-2016), the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) fired no less than nine employees for violating sexual harassment policies. During that same period, UCSF also investigated over a dozen other employees for the same kinds of violations. These facts alone indicate a problem within the University, but the recent release of records shows that the problem runs even deeper.
