Gov Issues New Anti-Harassment Order

Governor Rick Scott signed an executive order Wednesday establishing new policies to deal with sexual harassment at state agencies. 

The order covers employee training, reporting of harassment and investigation of any allegations.

"Every agency was doing it a little bit differently," he said. "What this did is set up a process where we have clear expectations of what the training would be, what the reporting process would be. It's all just to make sure that we have a process that works."

Scott issued the order after one of the men he appointed to the Public Service Commission, Rich Workman of Melbourne, was forced to resign after being accused of sexual misconduct by State Senator Lizbeth Benequisto of Fort Myers.
