Speaker Coughlin Sets Landmark Anti-Discrimination, Anti-Harassment Policy for New Jersey General Assembly, Measure to Move Next Voting Session

Strengthening protections for New Jersey General Assembly employees, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin announced Wednesday a resolution detailing its Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy will be considered and voted on by the full body Thursday, September 27 during the voting session. The legislation underscores the commitment to providing its members, employees and third parties with a work environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment.

Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex): “The time to have in place a comprehensive anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policy that applies to everyone connected in any way to the General Assembly is long overdue. This new mandate illustrates that we fully recognize there must be zero tolerance for any form of harassment or discrimination. Every legislator and every staff member deserves a safe, inclusive and welcoming workplace. This measure represents the most rigorous policy possible.”
