On Feb. 10, 2022, the U.S. Senate passed the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act. The U.S. House of Representatives had previously passed the Act, which is now expected to be signed by President Biden. Once signed, the Act will go into effect immediately.


Ending Forced Arbitration Act

  • The U.S. Congress approved a bill that would require most workplace sexual harassment and assault claims to be resolved by courts rather than through arbitration.

Similar State Laws

  • Some states already have laws that prohibit arbitration agreements for sexual harassment and assault claims.
