- Justice department employees also alleged retaliation
- Harris, then state attorney general, was ‘unaware’ of cases
The California department of justice paid more than $1m to employees who alleged they faced sexual harassment or workplace retaliation while presidential candidate Kamala Harris was state attorney general, it was reported on Friday.
The settlements involved allegations of inappropriate touching or comments as well as other allegations made from 2011 to 2017. They were disclosed this week in response to a state Public Records Act request from the Los Angeles Times.
