[ARCHIVED] County Legislature Passes New Law Improving Nassau County’s Sexual Harassment Policy

Nassau County Legislator C. William Gaylor III and the Nassau County Legislature has passed legislation enhancing Nassau County’s existing sexual harassment policies and protections. The Legislature acted in response to the disclosure of numerous sexual harassment complaints and allegations throughout the nation.

The new legislation requires the following: Dissemination of the county’s sexual harassment policy to Nassau County employees, updating the sexual harassment policy, online training of Nassau County employees, and reporting of incidents of sexual harassment to the Nassau County Legislature’s leaders. Pursuant to this legislation, all necessary steps must be taken to maintain the confidentiality of the identity of any Nassau County employee who reports an incident of sexual harassment.

“The rise of sexual harassment complaints across the country has led us to look at our internal policies here in Nassau County,” Legislator Gaylor said. “The workers of Nassau County should not ever feel threatened, unsafe or degraded because of sexual harassment. This policy change will help keep our workplace comfortable and safe for everyone.  There is no tolerance for sexual harassment in Nassau County.” 

The Nassau County Legislature greatly values the county’s hardworking employees. The new legislation sends a message that sexual harassment in the county workplace will not be tolerated.
