Senator Schwank Introduces NDA Ban for Sexual Harassment Settlements

Harrisburg, November 13, 2017 − Sen. Judy Schwank will introduce legislation that will ensure victims of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct are not silenced by a non-disclosure agreement.

“Non-disclosure agreements can make it easier for serial predators to continue their patterns of abuse,” Schwank said. “And victims who want to report them are often pressured into keeping quiet via NDAs. This legislation will be a positive step forward in protecting Pennsylvanians from sexual harassment.”

Sen. Schwank will discuss this proposal in the Capitol Media Center on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 10 a.m. Representatives from the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape will also speak.

When: Wednesday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m.

Where: Capitol Media Center, Capitol Complex, Commonwealth Avenue, Harrisburg

Who: Sen. Judy Schwank and representatives from the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape
