Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on Monday said he is open to holding further public hearings on sexual harassment as called for by a group of victims and survivors of harassment and assault while working in state government.

“We never close the door,” Heastie said. “We always want to make sure we’re working towards that people feel safe and are free from sex harassment and we’re always open to continuing that discussion.”

The hearing last month on the issue was the first one to be held in more than 20 years. Lawmakers heard 11 hours of testimony from both victims and survivors, but also the labor commissioners, lobbying and ethics regulators as well as employment attorneys.

New York’s state Legislature, even prior to the societal reckoning surrounding sexual misconduct, has drawn scrutiny for lawmakers and top aides accused harassment and assault over the years.

Lawmakers and the Sexual Harassment Working Group have said they want to hold at least two more hearings — one in New York City and another in Albany — to seek a wider range of input on sexual harassment across industries in order to better craft legislation.

“This is an epidemic and we should be hearing from people from many different industries so we can address the issue for fast food workers and farmers, and in government buildings, and in law firms, and all over,” Sen. Alessandra Biaggi said last week.
