UDW caregivers join #MeToo movement with a bill to help fight sexual harassment

May 1, 2018

Across the country, countless workers—from food industry workers to actors and more—have been coming forward to talk about sexual assault and harassment on the job.

But because we work in private homes, many caregivers still suffer in silence. We may be inappropriately flirted with, touched without our consent, or even assaulted by our clients — and without an easy way to report it without endangering our jobs, we usually don’t say anything at all.

That’s why UDW is working on passing AB 3082, a law to protect IHSS providers from sexual harassment by requiring the state to create a system for addressing harassment claims from IHSS providers.
