Organizers of last year's Google Walkout, where thousands of employees left their desks to protest the company's handling of executive sexual misconduct cases, are launching a social media campaign called "End Forced Arbitration."




Forced arbitration is an employment practice whereby workers are required to settle any disputes with management out of court, privately.




The campaign will debut Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 9 am EST, and will feature interviews on Twitter and Instagram with sexual harassment and assault survivors, as well as experts.




The 'public education' campaign is meant to be an effort that sparks change throughout the industry, at Google and beyond.



Organizers of last year's Google Walkout are not done yet.
After November's headline-making march, where thousands of Google workers across the world all left work in protest of the company's handling of executive sexual misconduct cases, some organizers are taking it one step further with a new effort called "End Forced Arbitration."
Forced arbitration is a widespread practice where employers require that workers resolve disputes with management privately, outside of a court of law.
