Pennsylvania Lawmakers Tackle Workplace Sexual Harassment

April 13th, 2018

Pennsylvania Lawmakers Tackle Workplace Sexual HarassmentThis week, Pennsylvania lawmakers tackled workplace sexual harassment and misconduct by revealing proposals focused on alleviating the behavior. The proposals issued include the creation of a task force to investigate laws and policies regarding workplace harassment and misconduct, which would be based on the Child Protection Task Force instituted in 2011. Also, a Joint State Government Commission would review anti-harassment and discrimination laws that involve state employees, which was prompted by the abuse allegations aimed against Representative Nick Miccarrelli earlier in the year. A hearing regarding the proposals will be held in two weeks.

One benefit of the many allegations against public figures regarding sexual harassment and misconduct has been the outcry for changes in and reinforcement of laws and policies by individuals, victims, and lawmakers. Attempts to create less toxic work environments by implementing policies that will reprimand and penalize perpetrators of sexual harassment will undoubtedly help businesses with their productivity and morale. Even individuals not victimized by this type of behavior may still experience the negativity by witnessing the abuse or feeling the ill effects of it while at work.
