Illinois Passes Omnibus Legislation to Combat Sexual Harassment
Aug 13, 2019
Friday, August 9, Governor Pritzker signed sweeping legislation that aims to deter and better redress claims of sexual harassment and other unlawful employment practices. The new law creates the Sexual Harassment Victim Representation Act
(“SHVRA”) and the Workplace Transparency Act (“WTA”). The SHVRA prevents conflicts that would result from representing both a victim and a perpetrator in a proceeding brought by one union member against another.
