A pair of interesting, non-wage, employment decisions were issued today: one from the Ninth Circuit and the other from the California Court of Appeal for the Fourth District.

  • In California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation v. State Personnel Board (Moya), No. D061653, __ Cal. App. 4th __ (4th Dist. April 26, 2013).  The court considered whether the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act, Gov. Code § 3300, et seq., excepts internal workers’ compensation fraud investigations from the one-year limitations period established in section 3304, subdivision (d)(1).  The court concluded that it does and affirmed the judgment.
  • In Petersen v. Boeing Company, No. 11-18075, __ F.3d __ (9th Cir. Apr. 26, 2013), a district court dismissed plaintiff’s case on the basis of a Saudi forum selection clause without holding an evidentiary hearing as to whether plaintiff was induced to assent to the forum selection clause through fraud or overreaching.  The Ninth Circuit reversed, holding that a triable issue of fact existed as to whether the forum selection clause was enforceable.
