Coalition Letter - Concerns Re: Senate Consideration of CAA Reform, 5/23/2018

The ACLU joined The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Equal Pay Today, National Women’s Law Center, and Public Citizen in this letter expressing concerns with the Senate-introduced Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 Reform Act. The legislation is indicative that Senators, on both sides of the aisle, recognize the critical necessity of reforming the process by which workplace discrimination, including sexual harassment, is addressed in the legislative workforce, but this bill contains numerous provisions that are contrary to key principles we’ve previously articulated, falls short of an acceptable compromise, and may have unintended negative consequences.
