June 24, 2019: Recently passed sexual harassment legislation

This year’s legislative session was home to a number of firsts including the first session for 17 freshman Senators. One of the freshman Senators, Sen. Alessandra Biaggi (D-Bronx), chair of the Senate Ethics Committee, has had a tremendous impact on the state’s response to sexual harassment including holding the first hearings on the issue in over a quarter century and by passing key legislation. We discussed the legislation with the Senator along with Rita Pasarell, attorney and co-founder of the Sexual Harassment Working Group, and Sarah Burger, Founding Member of the Burger Law Group and Second Vice President of National Employment Lawyers Association-New York.
