SHARE Act Gives Victims More Time

Thursday, January 18, 2018

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) and Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) have introduced legislation to give victims of sexual harassment more time to file claims. Assembly Bill 1870, the SHARE Act (Stopping Harassment and Reporting Extension), would extend the statute of limitations on claims of harassment from its current period of just one year to three under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). “For decades, the deck has been stacked against victims of sexual harassment,” said Assemblymember Laura Friedman, Chair of the Joint Rules Subcommittee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response. “Ending workplace harassment shouldn’t be a partisan issue. With AB 1870, we’re coming together to ensure that every Californian has access to justice.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
