Lobbyists Covered by New Hampshire State House Anti-Harassment Policies
New Hampshire lobbyists received a letter from the General Court last week confirming they are covered by the Legislature’s sexual harassment policies and procedures and should report any harassment they experience.
According to the letter, the State House is not only a workplace for legislative staff, Senators, and Representatives, but also for lobbyists and there is a duty to protect all individuals working there.
The letter follows a story by New Hampshire Public Radio about routine sexual harassment and casual sexism at the State House.
State House staff and lobbyists can report harassment by following procedures established by the Legislative Ethics Committee.
