#ME TOO movement drives legislation

Georgie Feeser

Legislators have moved quickly in response to the #Me Too movement.  Several new laws limiting sexual harassment nondisclosure agreements and expanding gender-based Equal Pay Act protections are a few of the changes that have taken or will take effect on June 7, 2018.  Recent Washington case law also expands existing anti-discrimination laws regarding employer liability for employees' harassment of customers.

Amy Mensik and Bill Symmes, Employment Law Attorneys, have outlined the changes, as well as what Washington State employers need to know to ensure compliance with the new laws.  The article can be found in the The Journal of Business April 12, 2018 publication.
