H.B. 360: Delaware General Assembly's Apparent Response to "#MeToo" Movement

July/August 2018

The #MeToo movement has sparked worldwide attention with its efforts to bring awareness and an end to sexual assault and harassment. The apparent impact can be seen not only in Hollywood but also right here in Delaware with the passage of House Bill 360, which broadens protections for Delaware workers against sexual harassment. The bill is aimed at combatting sexual harassment in the workplace while ensuring the safety and dignity of all Delaware workers, including state employees, unpaid interns, applicants, joint employees, and apprentices. HB360 applies to all Delaware employers with four or more employees and includes the State, the General Assembly, State agencies and labor organizations. It awaits the Governor’s signature.
