MEDIA ADVISORY: Pressley, Clark Discuss Sweeping Legislation to Address Workplace Harassment

BOSTONToday, April 23, 2019 at 11:15 AM ET, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) and Congresswoman Katherine Clark (MA-05) will hold a press conference to discuss their new anti-workplace harassment bill – the Bringing an End to Harassment by Enhancing Accountability and Rejecting Discrimination (Be HEARD) in the Workplace Act.  

This comprehensive, groundbreaking legislation is a continuation of Congresswoman Pressley’s staunch advocacy for workers’ and survivors’ rights. The bill takes critical steps to ensure that businesses have more resources to prevent harassment, workers are supported when they seek accountability and justice, and those who think they can get away with assault or harassment on the job get a clear message: time is up.

Congresswoman Katherine Clark (MA-05)
