Lab. Code 970 prohibits an employer from inducing an employee to relocate and accept employment by means of knowingly false representations about the kind, character, or existence of work or how long it will last.  Here, the trial court erred in granting the defendant employer summary judgment on plaintiff’s claim under section 970.  The at-will employment contract that the plaintiff signed precluded the portion of his claim based on duration of employment, but not the part of his claim based on a false promise about the role he would fill for the defendant employer.
