The Los Angeles City Council is putting its harassment policy under review. Councilman Paul Krekorian told KFI's Kris Ankarlo that reporting sexual harassment about city employees should be streamlined.
"By making it easier for a victim to be able to report it, by ensuring that every manager in this city reports to personnel the number of complaints that they've had - whether they result in a claim, or a lawsuit, or not."
Co-sponsor, Councilwoman Nury Martinez said the new reporting policy can help victims see the city is taking their claims seriously.
"How we're going to make it less confusing, less fragmented, and less flawed so that our victims can actually see their process."
A measure to draft a new reporting policy was approved by the council today. A hotline and website for employees to report harassment will also be considered.
Krikorian says the new measure will help centralize the reports.
"So we can get to the root of the problem and prevent this kind of abuse in the first place."
