Wolf looks at tougher standards against workplace harassment

News

Governor Tom Wolf is joining with lawmakers from both parties in calling for tougher standards when it comes to sexual harassment in the workplace.

The group hopes to address a number of key areas including:

  • The banning of mandatory non-disclosure agreements in abuse cases
  • More workplace training
  • Extending the statute of limitations for sexual discrimination and assault crimes
  • The creation of a prevention task force

Wolf says, “These changes will support employees in workplaces and provide new legal avenues for victims and these changes are designed to hold those responsible for what they’ve done”.
