Midyear Meeting 2018: ABA adopts new policy to combat sexual harassment in the workplace

The House of Delegates approves Resolution 302 on Feb. 5 during the 2018 Midyear Meeting session in Vancouver.

It urges that all employers adopt and enforce policies to “prohibit, prevent, and promptly redress” harassment and retaliation based on “gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and the intersection of sex with race and/or ethnicity.” 

The resolution was sponsored by the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, the ABA Section of Litigation and the ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice.
