Abstract: Provides relative to pre-dispute arbitration agreements concerning claims or accusations
involving sexual harassment in the workplace.
Proposed law provides that it shall be considered unlawful employment practice for an employer to
require, as a condition of employment or continued employment, a prospective employee or
employee to enter into a pre-dispute arbitration agreement that includes a provision requiring
arbitration for any claim or accusation concerning sexual harassment in the workplace.
Proposed law provides that the provisions of proposed law shall not prohibit an employer and
employee from consenting to arbitrating a sexual harassment claim or accusation after that claim or
accusation has arisen.
