Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) helped pass a resolution that will require all members of the House of Representatives, staff, and interns to undergo anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training. Ever since being elected to office, Rep. Peters and everyone on his staff has been required to complete this training.
Rep. Peters released the following statement:
“This mandated training is long overdue and today’s action sends a clear message that any form of harassment will not be tolerated in Congress,”said Rep. Peters. “Even before it was required, my office has mandated this training simply because it’s the right thing to do and now it will be required for all offices. Next, we must change the ridiculous law that allows members to use taxpayer money to pay for settlements in sexual harassment cases. Congress must set the example with a respectful work environment and zero tolerance policy toward all forms of harassment, discrimination, and abuse.”
