Many States Implementing New Sexual Harassment Laws in 2019

In an ongoing response to the #MeToo movement, many states are implementing new laws in 2019 to combat sexual harassment in the workplace.

In California, the use of confidential settlements in sexual abuse and harassment cases will become a thing of the past. Settlements will now be required to identify the accused harasser. California is also changing its laws regarding workers to sign releases of liability in exchange for employment or a bonus.

And Delaware, New York and Washington have all made substantial changes to their respective sexual harassment policies. For example, in New York, state contractors will have to draft sexual harassment policies and train their workers on them.

The ripple effects of the #MeToo movement will continue to be felt throughout 2019 as more positive changes to workplace laws are likely to occur.
