Endorsements & Opposition
- Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) compiled a set of endorsements from other senators and representatives in a press release. Senator Baldwin herself states: “If you work hard and play by the rules you should have the opportunity to get ahead. Unfortunately, workplace harassment remains an unacceptable reality that threatens the economic security of far too many people, particularly women, working to build a better future for themselves and their families. Harassment has no place in the workplace and should never impede economic success.”
- From the same press release, Representative George Miller (D-CA-11) said: “Hard-working Americans should not have their livelihoods threatened by harassment in the workplace. To better protect workers, the Fair Employment Protection Act reverses a recent Supreme Court decision that made it harder for victims of unlawful and insidious harassment to hold their employers accountable. By restoring strong legal protections, this bill will help ensure that employees who work hard and play by the rules receive the justice they deserve and thrive in their workplace.”
- At present, there has not been publicly reported opposition to this bill.
