California law requires employers to:

  • Respond to complaints in a timely manner;
  • Document and track complaints for reasonable progress;
  • Timely close complaints;
  • Reach reasonable conclusions based on the evidence collected;
  • If the investigation reveals misconduct, take appropriate corrective action and remedial measures, including steps to prevent future harassment and measures to correct the effects of the harassing behavior; and
  • Take steps to prevent retaliation.1
