House Approves Two Workplace Sexual Misconduct Studies

June 19th, 2018

House Approves Two Workplace Sexual Misconduct StudiesThe Pennsylvania House of Representatives approved two separate studies which will focus on workplace sexual misconduct on Monday. One study would create a task force to review laws, regulations, and policies, and streamline misconduct reporting by claimants. The report would be available by May 2019. The other study would examine the numbers of sexual harassment and misconduct claims within all three branches of the state government in the past five years, which includes disciplinary cases, monetary settlements, and law enforcement referrals. Detractors of the administration of the workplace sexual misconduct studies believe that this deters and delays any action and proposed legislation from going forward to resolve these issues and others that may crop up.

After numerous complaints regarding sexual harassment and misconduct in the workplace, many businesses and governmental entities are trying to revise their current policies, implement new safeguards for employees, and investigate which methods to use in reporting claims and reprimanding perpetrators. It is important that victims of this type of abuse feel comfortable in reporting the behavior and receiving the support they need from their employers. The state government bears a responsibility to set an example for other industries to follow through on examining their current policies and implementing new or revised ones if necessary.
