The Workers Compensation Act does not preempt claims for violation of the Fair Housing and Employment Act. Here, a hotel maid alleged a viable, non-preempted FEHA claim after she was raped in the hotel by a trespasser. Her complaint alleged that the hotel had notice that the trespasser was loose in the hotel and sexually harassing maids on other floors but took no effective action to prevent him from sexually harassing plaintiff.
