There is a recently-enacted law in New York State that requires that all employers in New York State provide sexual harassment training to their employees by January 1, 2019. Employers in New York State need to get their ducks in a row and ensure that they are in compliance prior to the January 1, 2019 deadline. In addition, New York State employers need to provide training to any new hires within 30 days of their date of hire. The law requires that employees be trained annually. This includes all employees even those that work part-time or are transient and only work for one day in New York. The Department of Labor has indicated that after the initial training which must take place by January 1, 2019, the date of the annual training "may be based on the calendar year, anniversary of each employee’s start date or any other date the employer chooses." The Department of Labor recently issued model sexual harassment prevention materials and FAQ's indicating that the sexual harassment training must be interactive and list the people at the organization to whom complaints of sexual harassment should be provided. New York City also recently passed the "Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act" which will be effective April 1, 2019 and which applies to employers located in New York City with 15 or more employees. This law requires employers in New York City with 15 or more employees to also provide annual sexual harassment prevention training.
