Sen. Althoff appointed to Senate Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Awareness and Prevention
State Senator Pamela Althoff (R-McHenry) is one of five Republican lawmakers appointed to serve on the newly formed Senate Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Awareness and Prevention.
“I am ready to get to work to help change the culture, not only in Springfield, but in workplaces across the state,” said Sen. Althoff. “This is a topic that needs to be taken seriously, even when the national conversation dies down. I am committed to ensuring that employees, both in the public and private sectors, are being treated fairly. As members of the task force, we will review the consequences of such actions to make sure harassment and discrimination are never tolerated.”
The goal of the new task force will be to conduct a comprehensive review of legal and social consequences of sexual discrimination and harassment in both the public and private sectors. The Task Force will study and make recommendations on combating sexual discrimination and harassment in workplaces, educational institutions, and in State and local government.
Other Senate Republicans appointed to the Task Force are Senators:
· Karen McConnaughay (R-33rd District)
· John Curran (R-41st District)
· Jil Tracy (R-47th District)
· Dale Righter (R-55th District)
Members of the Task Force will not receive compensation for their service.
