A key House committee will maintain a listening to on badual harbadment later this month, specializing in whether or not Congress is doing sufficient internally to forestall such conduct.
The House Administration Committee, which has jurisdiction over day-to-day operations of the chamber, will maintain a Nov. 14 listening to on the problem, Chairman Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) introduced Friday.

The listening to is a part of a evaluation of House coverage on badual harbadment ordered by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
“This is an important issue and the House of Representatives is committed to preventing any form of harbadment,” Harper stated in a press release. “We need to make certain that the House provides the needed badual harbadment awareness training, as well as policies that support a person’s rights to report when they have been victimized.”
Hours earlier, Ryan despatched an electronic mail to all House workplaces urging members and staffers to bear badual harbadment coaching.
“First, let me be absolutely clear that any form of harbadment has no place in this institution. Each of us has a responsibility to ensure a workplace that is free from discrimination, harbadment, and retaliation,” Ryan stated. “To that end, I strongly encourage you to complete badual harbadment training and to mandate for your staff.”
