Following Google’s lead, Facebook announced to employees that it would be ending its policy that required mandatory arbitration for employee sexual harassment claims.

Such complaints could be aired publically in courts, the FB said. The updated policy also said “its interoffice dating policy to require any executive at a director level or above to disclose if they are dating someone in the company.”

Arbitration, a private dispute resolution process that resembles the public legal system, is often preferred by corporations as a way to reduce costs and scrutiny surrounding such complaints.
