Sexual harassment training is now required for all New York City employers with 15 or more employees and soon will be required for employers in New York State as well. Recently, on May 9, 2018, New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act. This is one of the strictest laws prohibiting sexual harassment and requires employers in New York City to conduct interactive sexual harassment training at least annually for all employees and supervisors/managers. The law also requires employers to have a sexual harassment policy and it applies the prohibitions in the New York City Human Rights Law to all private employers in New York City. But it is not only employers in New York City that now have to provide sexual harassment training under new laws. New York State has also enacted such a law that will be effective October 9, 2018. All New York State employers must provide sexual harassment training to all employees, interns and independent contractors by January 1, 2018 and for new employees within 30 days of their date of hire. This training must be provided annually. We can help. Our Sexual Harassment Training for Managers is fully compliant with the recently-enacted New York State and New York City laws and is interactive, engaging and legally compliant. Do not delay.
