THE SENATE’S TASK FORCE ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION IS HIGHLIGHTING PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND FUTURE GOALS.

 

THE TASK FORCE MADE SEVERAL RECOMMENDATIONS LAST YEAR AS THE ME-TOO MOVEMENT GAINED STEAM…AND HELPED PASS SEVERAL NEW LAWS. THAT INCLUDES ETHICS REFORMS AND ADDRESSING THE BACKLOG OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT CLAIMS IN THE LEGISLATURE. BUT CO-CHAIR, SENATOR MELINDA BUSH OF GRAYSLAKE, SAYE MORE MUST BE DONE.

 

 

BUSH SAYS THAT INCLUDES A BILL REQUIRING ALL HOTELS AND CASINOS TO ADOPT ANTI-HARASSMENT POLICIES AND HAVE SOME SORT OF PANIC BUTTON FOR EMPLOYEES.

 

 

PREVIOUS LEGISLATION REQUIRED SEXUAL HARASSMENT PREVENTION TRAINING AND AIMED TO CLEAR THE BACKLOG OF CLAIMS FILED IN THE LEGISLATURE.
