(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) is a co-author of legislation to give victims of sexual harassment more time to file claims. Assembly Bill 1870, the SHARE Act (Stopping Harassment and Reporting Extension), would extend the statute of limitations on claims of harassment from its current period of just one year to three years under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). “We have a higher responsibility, I think, than corporate America and other industries and I have a responsibility to set the tone for everyone else,” Berman said.
