Senate passes sweeping overhaul of workplace sexual misconduct law. #AngelinaJolie visits #capitolhill to support the bill.

The #Senate passed one of the largest workplace reforms in decades, freeing victims of #sexualharassment and #sexualassault to seek justice in court. The bipartisan legislation was approved by voice vote. It now heads to President #Biden’s desk for his signature.

The bill was approved by an overwhelming bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives, by 335-97. The legislation ends the use of forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment and assault claims.

Actor #AngelinaJolie urged senators to reauthorize the #Violence Against #Women Act, a 1990s #law that extended protections for #domesticviolence survivors. “It will help us fix a broken system that protects #predators and corporations and will help to end the days of silencing #survivors,” said Sen. #KirstenGillibrand.

The bill, called Ending Forced Arbitration of #SexualAssault and #SexualHarassment #Act, #bans forced #arbitration in cases involving sexual misconduct and allows victims the option of bringing up the dispute in federal, tribal or state court. More than 60 million Americans are subjected to these provisions in employment contracts.
