Law Invaliding Arbitration Agreements For Sexual Harassment Claims Passes Congress

Jan 7, 2020


Welcome to Richardson Law Firm PC's page dedicated to providing comprehensive information about the recently passed law invalidating arbitration agreements for sexual harassment claims. As a leading firm in employment law, we understand the importance of ensuring justice and protection for victims of workplace harassment. This groundbreaking law aims to address the challenges faced by individuals who have been subjected to sexual harassment and empowers them to seek the justice they deserve.

Understanding the Law: A New Era for Sexual Harassment Claims

The passage of this law marks a significant milestone in the fight against sexual harassment in the workplace. Previously, arbitration agreements often required employees to settle disputes through private arbitration rather than taking legal action in a court of law. Unfortunately, this often resulted in victims being silenced and their claims going unresolved.

With the new legislation, individuals seeking justice for sexual harassment claims now have the right to pursue their cases in court, bypassing forced arbitration. This means that victims can now directly hold accountable the perpetrators of sexual harassment and the organizations that allowed such behavior to occur.

The Implications for Employees and Employers

For employees, this law provides a renewed sense of empowerment and the ability to seek justice in a public forum. It eliminates the fear of forced arbitration, which can often be biased in favor of the employer and limit the potential compensation victims can receive. Victims can now bring their cases to court, ensuring transparency and accountability in the pursuit of justice.

Employers, on the other hand, need to be aware of the changes brought about by this law. They must prioritize the implementation of strict policies against sexual harassment in the workplace and create a safe environment for their employees. Failing to do so can lead to legal consequences and irreparable damage to their reputation.
