A New Law for NYS Employers
Effective Oct. 9, 2018, all employers in New York state must adopt a written policy and conduct annual employee training on sexual harassment in the workplace. These requirements were enacted as part of the state’s 2019 budget on April 12, 2018.
The law also prohibits employers from requiring arbitration to resolve sexual harassment claims under a written contract and from making confidentiality a condition of settlement for sexual harassment claims, effective July 11, 2018.
Finally, the law allows nonemployees, such as contractors or vendors, to hold an employer liable for sexual harassment in the employer’s workplace, effective immediately.
We recently hosted a webinar for clients and prospects to review both the law as well as our firm's solution to ensure that not only are you compliant with the law, but you have a solution that supports a strong supportive culture.
