Binghamton Reviews Sexual Harassment Policy

City Council continues to review Binghamton's Sexual Harassment Policy tonight.

The review and revision of the harassment policy was sparked by recent incidents not just with the Binghamton Police Department but with other staff members, raising concerns about the policy.

It has been more than fifteen years since there has been a revision to it. Chair of Employees Committee Lea Webb says City Council is making changes to training, definitions and making sure reporting procedures are clear.

Lea Webb said, " Let's review our current policy, see where we are complying if there's areas we can strengthen the language and make things more clear and be more supportive to City Hall employees then let's do that."

City Hall will continue the review and revisions on Wednesday, August 19th.
