It's time to end sexual harassment in the state legislature. You can help to make that happen!
LEGISLATION ALERT: HB 1000 and SB 480 work to address #MeToo issues in our state legislature, but more co-sponsors are needed.
The #MeToo Act at a glance:
-Bans the use of non-disclosure agreements which mask the names of Members of the General Assembly who are accused of harassment if the complaint is credible;
-Requires that credibly accused members of the Legislature be held accountable to the taxpayers of Pennsylvania and require that they repay any settlements that were paid with taxpayer dollars;
-Requires that paid administrative leave, remote work assignments, and reimbursement for licensed professional counseling be offered to employees during the entire adjudication of the proceedings.
-Establishes procedures for keeping the investigatory, prosecutorial, and adjudicatory functions separate as required under Pennsylvania law;
-Establishes a new section of procedures for promulgating temporary regulations to facilitate the prompt implementation of this new section;
-Combines settlement provisions with provisions relating to the source of payment, the personal liability of elected officials, and the payment of awards
