California’s Legislature was rocked by revelations in Fall 2017 that several lawmakers were investigated, and in some cases were disciplined, for sexual harassment in the workplace. The story became part of a larger conversation within the #MeToo movement.
CapRadio’s State Government Reporter Scott Rodd has been looking at why California lawmakers and agency heads seem to be having such a hard time answering basic questions about sexual harassment in state government. Rodd’s reporting uncovered California that is building a system to track sexual harassment complaints filed by state employees. But his reporting also found that the state already had a system to track complaints until it was eliminated in 2012.
