Federal Courts to Assess Sexual Harassment Safeguards

January 2nd, 2018

Chief Justice Roberts announced that formal assessments will be made regarding the level of sexual harassment safeguards in place for staff in the federal court system. On Sunday, the new initiative was introduced, prompted by the December 18th retirement of Justice Alex Kosinski from California who was accused of sexual misconduct. Robert’s 2017 State Judiciary Report outlined the initiative, which will devise procedures to protect law clerks and other staff members against sexual harassment. Current standards will be assessed and amended to ensure that judges and other employees adhere to strict policies regarding appropriate workplace behavior.

The operation of and matters involving the federal courts are strictly confidential, which may have contributed to the past hesitancy by court employees in reporting sexual harassment and misconduct by their colleagues or superiors. With the introduction of the new initiative, which will administer a detailed assessment of the federal courts workplace policies regarding sexual harassment, Chief Justice and other court officials are hoping to eliminate the onslaught of sexual harassment allegations spreading throughout the federal court system.
