MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) — South Carolina Senior U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham along with six other Senators and Representatives will announce legislation to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace and void forced arbitration agreements that prevent sexual harassment survivors from getting the justice they deserve.
A news conference is scheduled for Wednesday, December 6 at 11:30 a.m. in the Senate Visitors Center in Washington, D.C.
Graham, along with Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) will be joined by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson and a bipartisan group of members of Congress including U.S. Representative Cheri Bustos (D-Illinois), U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington), U.S. Representative Walter Jones (R-North Carolina), and U.S. Representative Elise Stefanik (R-New York)
“This bipartisan legislation would invalidate forced arbitration, bring sexual harassment and discrimination claims out of secret settlement process and into the light of day to help eliminate institutionalized protections for abusers,” according to a news release.
