Ministers OK 4-Year Limit on Sexual Harassment Suits

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation endorsed, Sunday, a bill by Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) which would extend the statute of limitations on civil suits for sexual harassment to four years.

MK Hotovely called endorsement an important step, adding that the extension was needed as a deterrent, especially since victims often take a long time before they succeed in filing complaints and asserting their rights.
