San Francisco Chronicle: Lawmakers seek to give Californians 3 years to file sex harassment complaints
The San Francisco Chronicle covered an ERA-sponsored bill – AB 1870 – that would extend the statute of limitations for sexual harassment claims.
Jessica Stender, a lawyer for Equal Rights Advocates in San Francisco, said many workers don’t realize they have a limited window to file the discrimination or harassment claim.
“Many women who have survived sexual harassment at work, particularly low-wage workers, are not even aware the clock has begun to run,” Stender said.
