SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California legislative workers are applauding the passage of a invoice granting them whistleblower protections in the event that they file sexual misconduct or different misbehavior.
The Assembly handed the invoice Monday, sending it to Gov. Jerry Brown. It will take impact right away if he indicators it. The Senate handed the invoice Thursday after 4 years of stonewalling it.
Legislative staff contributors, many dressed in black, plan to assemble outdoor the Capitol for a rally celebrating the invoice’s passage.
It comes simply days after the Legislature launched paperwork outlining sexual misconduct proceedings towards lawmakers and staffers since 2006. Critics of the Legislature say the record unload used to be insufficient as a result of some proceedings weren’t investigated and a few other folks don’t file dangerous habits for concern of retaliation. Staff contributors hope new whistleblower protections will trade that.
