Two Workplace Sexual Harassment Bills Proposed in Pennsylvania

Posted on

Two Workplace Sexual Harassment Bills Proposed in PennsylvaniaOn Monday, Pennsylvania State Representative, Margo Davidson, proposed two workplace sexual harassment bills into the legislature. In the first bill called “Preventing Harassment and Discrimination in the Workplace,” victims of employment discrimination would be enabled to file complaints within a longer time frame with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. The second bill titled “TimesUP — Sexual Harassment by Public Officials” gives the State Ethics Commission more responsibility in the investigation of sexual harassment claims involving governmental officials and public employees in the state.

Employees must be protected in all types of industries including the state government from sexual harassment and various forms of employment discrimination. The first bill, especially, may encourage victims and whistleblowers to report the actions committed against them instead of waiting until it is too late. If the proposed bills become law, more stories will flood through the courts and offer justice to victims.
