FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, February, 14, 2022: The Disparti Law Group applauds the US Senate’s approval of the recent bill titled “Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act.” The bill bans using passages in an employment contract that forces a sexual abuse victim to seek arbitration instead of justice in court.
The bill (S.2342) empowers an individual in a sexual assault or harassment case by giving them an option between seeking justice in court or arbitration. This measure invalidates any pre-existing clauses in current instances that might make it difficult for abuse survivors to petition their employers. This means the bill benefits people once trapped in these clauses as much as the new employees who come in after the bill’s passing.
“We take sexual assault cases very seriously. This is a big deal and it’s something that impacts many people right here in the Chicago area,” said Attorney Larry Disparti, Owner & Founder of The Disparti Law Group. “This bill gives a voice to past victims of sexual assault and harassment and the time to seek justice is now. We look forward to helping victims get the justice they deserve.”
