The statute of limitations on sexual harassment lawsuits will be extended from three to seven years, according to a bill authorized by the Knesset Committee on the Status of Women for its second and third (final) plenum readings on Wednesday.

The legislation, proposed by committee chairwoman Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), is expected to be brought to its final votes next week.

According to the bill, a victim of sexual harassment may sue up to seven years after the event.
