Civil and Human Rights Group Endorses Anti-Harassment Acts
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights issued a statement praising the House of Representatives’ passage of HR 4924, the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 Reform Act, and for its introduction of H Res. 724. It says, in part, “We applaud the bipartisan effort in Congress to finally protect all the women and men in the legislative branch against discrimination, sexual harassment, and other workplace harassment. … We call on the Senate to take up H.R. 4924 as soon as possible and for both houses on a bipartisan basis to turn next to proposals to strengthen protections against sexual and other workplace harassment and discrimination for all employees outside of the Congress.”
H.R. 4924 seeks to provide a more balanced method for investigating and resolving workplace discrimination and harassment in the legislative branch and to end mandatory mediation, among other goals. H Res. 724 would require mandatory policies in every representative’s office to address and prevent discrimination and harassment.
