House Minority Leader’s Statement on Sexual Harassment Prevention Order Adoption

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) issued the following statement today following the House’s adoption of an Order directing House Counsel to undertake a comprehensive review of its policies to ensure a workplace free of sexual harassment:

“I applaud Speaker DeLeo’s decision to initiate a comprehensive review of House policies on sexual harassment.  Everyone deserves a safe work environment free of sexual harassment, and no one should ever fear they will be subject to retaliation for reporting unacceptable behavior by a colleague, co-worker or supervisor. I strongly endorse this effort to address a very serious issue, and I stand ready to assist in any way possible.”
