The clock is ticking.

We are just weeks away from the deadline for conducting sexual harassment prevention training, required by New York State law.

All New York State employers are required to adopt written sexual harassment prevention policies and institute annual anti-harassment training for employees.  To satisfy the requirements, employers must train all employees, including exempt, non-exempt, part-time, season, and temporary employees — on or before October 9, 2019.  According to the State’s guidance, employers also need to train employees who “work a portion of their time in New York State, even if they are based in another state.”
