New York Employers Required To Provide Sexual Harassment Training By January 1, 2019
As we previously reported, the New York State Sexual Harassment Law passed in April 2018 required all employers to:
Adopt the policy prohibiting sexual harassment in the form promulgated by the New York State Department of Labor (the “NYSDOL”) in consultation with the New York State Division of Human Rights, or adopt another policy that equals or exceeds the standards set by NYSDOL; and
Provide annual sexual harassment training for all their employees.
Please be advised that last month NYSDOL announced that employers must provide the required training by January 1, 2019, and that the state’s draft model sexual harassment policy is available on the NYSDOL website.
