What's New? Anti-Harassment Legislation

New York State and New York City recently passed several anti-harassment laws in the wake of the #MeToo movement that will soon require employers to provide annual sexual harassment prevention training to all workers, distribute a comprehensive sexual harassment prevention policy, and update their form employment contracts and settlement agreements. All employers with New York State and New York City employees should review their sexual harassment prevention policies, anti-harassment training programs, employment contracts, and settlement agreement forms to revise as necessary as these various new laws take effect.

These requirements begin to take effect on October 9, 2018.
