Are You Compliant? NY Anti-Sexual Harassment Laws are Now in Effect
Changes to the Anti-Sexual Harassment laws in NY State are now in effect. What does this mean to Employers operating in NY State?
All NY State Employers are now required to:
- Adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy that meets or exceeds the State’s Model Policy and provide it to all employees.
- Adopt a Complaint Form that meets or exceeds the Model Form and provide it to all Employees as part of the Policy.
- Provide annual training to each employee on how to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.
- Set up a compliant internal sexual harassment reporting process.
Not to be outdone by the State, New York City also adopted a separate Anti-Sexual Harassment Law, the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act, which requires specific NYC Employers to provide additional materials to employees, including:
Display of NYC Anti-Sexual Harassment Notices in English and Spanish
Provision of NYC Anti-Sexual Harassment Work Sheet
