Mayor's Order 2023-131
On October 31, 2023, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a Mayor’s Order updating DC Government’s sexual harassment policy. The Mayor’s Order, which clarifies and strengthens many provisions from the 2017 order, reaffirms that DC Government does not tolerate any form of inappropriate workplace conduct including sexual harassment, nor does it tolerate sexual harassment in non-employment interactions between DC Government employees and the public.
How to File a Complaint
If you are a victim of sexual harassment, you need to file a report with your Agency's Sexual Harassment Officer (SHO).
DC Victim Hotline
Complainants of sexual assault or other possible crimes should contact the DC Victim Hotline.
