State lawmakers announced Thursday they are backing a package of bills meant to advance efforts combating sexual harassment in New York.

The half dozen bills are sponsored by Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, a Queens Democrat, and Bronx Democratic Sen.-elect Alessandra Biaggi.

“Countless high profile cases of misconduct and the resulting #MeToo movement have put a spotlight on the pervasive and persistent problem of sexual harassment,” Simotas said. “Fighting sexual harassment is a complex battle and my six bills tackle the scourge of confidentiality agreements, non-disclosure agreements, insufficient statutes of limitations and more.”

Taken together, the measures address a range of issues surrounding harassment and discrimination settlements, as well as employee training.

The legislation includes reforms to confidentiality agreements, requiring that a written waiver explaining the agreement’s consequences and any rights that would be surrendered as a result. Another bill would have employers notify their workers of non-disclosure or non-dispargement stipulations in a contract. A third would extend the time to file a harassment or discrimination complaint with the state’s Human Rights Division.

Another bill would mandate all state workers to complete a bystander intervention training course and another have all harassment and settlement agreements be disclosed to the state attorney general’s office.

Lawmakers also want a bill that would have any confidentiality clause in a settlement arrangement backed by separate compensation in addition to the damages.

Before the societal reckoning surrounding sexual harassment and assault, New York’s state government, including the Legislature, has contended with multiple high-profile cases involving lawmakers or prominent officials.

Biaggi in a September Democratic primary defeated Sen. Jeff Klein, who had been accused of forcibly kissing a then-staffer.

“Across this country, governments, companies, and communities have taken strong action to combat sexual harassment and abuse, and I look forward to making New York a place that makes all people feel safe in their workplaces,” Biaggi said.

The proposals received the backing of the Sexual Harassment Working Group, a panel of former state government workers who are survivors or victims of sexual harassment and assault.

“These necessary bills will move us one step closer towards a #HarassmentFreeAlbany, and the Sexual Harassment Working Group is proud to fight for survivor centric-laws with Assemblymember Simotas and Senator Elect Biaggi,” the group said in a statement.

“New York will only have the strongest laws in the nation when survivors and stakeholders share their expertise and institutions have the courage to listen and change. It’s #TimesUp on using survivors as props while shutting us out of the process.”
