February 2018 – California’s state Legislature held hearings this month on sexual harassment, with a focus on closing legal loopholes that harassers have used to protect themselves.
Since well before the #MeToo movement began, plaintiff attorney groups have been pushing hard to advance solutions toward closing those loopholes. The Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) organization has been at the forefront of those efforts.
At the state Legislature hearing, California employment lawyer Daren Lipinsky testified on behalf of the CAOC before the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of AB820, which effectively bans employer mandated secret settlements of sexual harassment and discrimination claims. In his testimony, Lipinsky outlines the reasons why these secret settlements should be prohibited.
