NW Herald: Illinois House Adopts McSweeney's Bill Requiring Disclosure of Sexual Harassment

From the NW Herald

"The Illinois House has adopted a bill from the desk of state Rep. David McSweeney that amends the Local Records Act to require public bodies to disclose information about severance agreements tied to sexual harassment or discrimination.

The Barrington Hills Republican filed the bill after news reports that the Des Plaines Elementary School District 62 Board voted to pay then-Superintendent Floyd Williams a severance package after he was accused of sexually harassing employees.

...House Bill 4242 requires local governments, school districts, community college districts or other local taxing bodies to publish information about severance agreements with employees or contractors who have engaged in sexual harassment or sexual discrimination."
