According to court records: On May 2, 2002, plaintiff went to work for ABC Company, which had a contract with California Department of General Services (“EHS”) to provide security services at state facilities in Sacramento, California. In August 2001, defendant XYZ Inc. took over the ABC contract with EHS, and plaintiff was hired by defendant XYZ on September 18, 2001. At the time plaintiff was hired by defendant XYZ, she informed them that she was going to school, but was available to work evening or night shifts.

In the fall of 2001, Johnson, a janitorial supervisor working at the B Building where plaintiff was assigned began subjecting plaintiff to inappropriate sexual comments and unwelcome sexual advances. Plaintiff said she made it clear that she did not welcome the sexual advances, and Johnson began retaliating against her. Plaintiff was reluctant to report Johnson’s conduct because her assignment accommodated her schedule and was close to home. Plaintiff said her manager promised her that her shift would not be changed and she would not be transferred.

Plaintiff claimed she was subjected to sexual harassment by Johnson, a EHS employee, while assigned to work at the B Building, one of the California state facilities where defendant XYZ was to provide security guards. When she reported the harassment, defendant XYZ retaliated against her by removing her from her full-time assignment at the B Building, after having promised not to do so. Defendant XYZ also did not give her another full-time assignment, but instead required her to call in daily to find out if it had any work for her each day and where.
