Sacramento – Today, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-San Bernardino), Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), and Assemblymember Marie Waldron (R-Escondido) announced that they will introduce legislation when the Legislature reconvenes in January to give victims of sexual harassment more time to file claims beyond the one year timeframe required under existing law.

“The stories of sexual harassment told by victims from all careers and walks of life have revealed that the existing systems for seeking justice are not working,” said Assemblymember Reyes.  “The evidence clearly indicates that the fear of retaliation and the psychological wounds caused by such actions can prevent victims from filing claims within the existing timelines required under current law.”
