California Labor Code Section 5409

5409. The running of the period of limitations prescribed by this chapter is an affirmative defense and operates to bar the remedy and not to extinguish the right of the employee. Such defense may be waived. Failure to present such defense prior to the submission of the cause for decision is a sufficient waiver.

(Enacted by Stats. 1937, Ch. 90.)
