Helping Victims of Sexual Harassment

In light of public revelations of state employees being sexually harassed within the workplace, I have co-sponsored new legislation which would help individuals who are victims of sexual misconduct. The legislation seeks to reform current procedures in the PA General Assembly for the investigation and resolution of allegations of sexual harassment and protections from said harassment.

The legislation would be known as the “#METOO PA General Assembly Act” (Member and Employee Training and Oversight on PA General Assembly Act. It is a state version of the federal measure impacting the U.S. Congress.

The state version would do the following:

  • Bans non-disclosure agreements which mask the names of members of the PA General Assembly who harass.
  • Prohibits any member of the PA General Assembly from paying settlement costs with taxpayer funds.
  • Requires that paid leave or “remote work assignments” be offered to victims during proceedings.
  • Guarantees that a lawyer or “victim’s counsel” be offered to represent victims during proceedings.
  • Puts in place “reform” procedures for investigation and resolution of complaints, improve training and transparency of sexual harassment prevention and response training in employment.

I am hopeful this legislation will come up for discussion in the next few weeks.

Legislative Year in Review
