§ 10011. Complaints Taken for Filing Purposes Only.
(a) Where the department rejects at intake all or some of the allegations presented by a person who seeks to file an employment discrimination complaint for investigation by the department, the department shall explain the reasons for rejection and offer the person the option of filing a complaint taken for filing purposes only. The department may only reject an allegation if it is clear that the statute of limitations has run and/or that the allegation, if proven, would not constitute a violation of the FEHA.
(b) A complaint accepted by the department for filing purposes only shall state the rejected allegations, which shall not be investigated by the department. The department may still dual-file the complaint with the EEOC. In the event that the complaint is not dual-filed, the department shall give the complainant contact information for the local EEOC office. Where a person rejects the department's offer to take a complaint for filing purposes only, that person may request that the department provide the reasons for rejection in writing, which the department shall thereafter provide.
