Facebook Inc. has joined a growing number of tech companies in ending forced private arbitration for employee sexual-harassment claims, according to Friday reports from the Wall Street Journal.

“Today, we are publishing our updated Workplace Relationships policy and amending our arbitration agreements to make arbitration a choice rather than a requirement in sexual harassment claims,” Facebook director of corporate media relations Anthony Harrison said in an emailed statement. “Sexual harassment is something that we take very seriously and there is no place for it at Facebook.”
