Quick Tip: New York State Sexual Harassment Policy & Training

All New York State Employers must adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy and training that meets or exceeds the law’s minimum standards. Rebecca explains this policy, the requirements of its training, and how Mackoul can help.

Beginning in October 2018 all New York State Employers must adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy and training that meet or exceeds the law’s minimum standards. The policy was to be implemented by October 9, 2018, and each employee must receive training on an annual basis.

This training must be:
-Interactive
-Include an explanation of sexual harassment consistent with guidance issued by the DOL
-Include examples of conduct that would constitute unlawful sexual harassment
-Include information concerning the federal and state statutory provisions concerning sexual harassment and remedies available to victims of sexual harassment
-Include information concerning employees’ rights of redress and all available forums for adjudicating complaints
-Include information addressing conduct by supervisors and any additional responsibilities for such supervisors

Mackoul offers a solution for policy & training. For more information, please contact us.
