A bipartisan group of legislators said Wednesday they plan to introduce a bill next month to give victims of sexual harassment additional time to file claims.

The proposal, by Assemblywomen Eloise Gomez Reyes (D-San Bernardino), Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) and Marie Waldron (R-Escondido), would give both public and private employees more time to come forward with a claim. A spokesman for Reyes said the legislators are working to determine what the new timeframe should be.

Under existing state law, a person has one year from the date of the last incident of sexual harassment to file a claim with the California Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing. That department, which is the state’s civil rights agency, enforces California laws that bar sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination. 

All three legislators are on a panel that last week examined the Assembly’s own procedures for handling sexual harassment complaints.
