Chapter 3(in files) this week focuses on employment and the laws that we must follow as managers. In that chapter, one of the topics that was brought up was sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is directly correlated with the #MeToo movement that has become very prominent within the past year or so.

If this bill were to be passed, do you think it will help our industry employees be better protected from sexual harassment? Please discuss and explain your answers/reasoning.
