Governor Nixon: Veto the Sexual Predator in the Workplace Protection Act
Dear Governor Nixon: Veto SB 188, The Sexual Predator in the Workplace Protection Act. Stand up for personal responsibility and the protection of Missouri's workforce!
Why is this important?
Missouri's legislature is continuing its wholesale assault on working people by attempting to gut Missouri's civil rights statute, the Missouri Human Rights Act. Under SB 188, corporate reactionaries have:
1. Removed harassers and discriminators from any personal responsibility for their acts.
2. Placed outdated and unfair caps on damages, including economic damages.
3. Lessened protection for private and governmental employees who blow the whistle on illegal conduct.
4.Made it more difficult for employees to prevail or even reach a jury of their peers in employment discrimination cases.
