California Lawmakers Want to Ban Confidential Sexual Harrassment Settlements
California legislators are considering a number of bills to fight sexual harassment in the workplace. One such bill would ban confidential settlements of certain claims; attorneys told SHRM Online that making settlement agreements open to the public, though, could have an unintended consequence for claimants. It could result in fewer settlements with employers and more litigation.
