Employment Law This Week® (Episode 108: Week of March 12, 2018) has released bonus footage of its interview with Beth McManus, a Senior Counsel at Epstein Becker Green.

Ms. McManus discusses The Sunlight in Workplace Harassment Act, which was introduced in both the House and the Senate in February in light of the #MeToo movement. The bill would require public companies to report information related to harassment and discrimination settlements and complaints in their SEC filings. Reports would have to include the number and dollar amount of settlements, the average length of time that it takes to resolve complaints, and the total number of harassment and discrimination complaints. In addition, the bill would require information about an employer’s efforts to prevent future acts of unlawful harassment, discrimination, or sexual abuse.
