The New York law enacted in 2018 and expanded in 2019 with the New York State budget requires all public and private employers to implement annual training, written sexual harassment prevention policies, and specific procedures that meet or exceed certain standards.
According to the sexual harassment law, all public and private employers must provide annual training, give their employees sexual harassment policies, and communicate in writing their specific procedures that meet or exceed the requirements outlined in a model notice provided by the NYS Department of Labor and the Division of Human Rights.
Yet, there continues to be some misunderstanding on who is required to comply with the new laws.
Who is Required to Provide Sexual Harassment Training in New York?
The answer is “You!”
Even if you are a sole proprietor, you need to know how the new laws cover independent contractors, volunteers and non-employees. Trainings must be designed to train both employees/owners with supervisory duties and a separate training for staff.
GTM’s Sexual Harassment Training Program
With a reputation for applying real-life scenarios to trainings, GTM’s live and e-training helps businesses of every size meet the new law requirements. Attendees are shown how to use their learnings in their daily work life.
While this training is one piece of addressing compliance, employers will also need help developing policies and procedures that create internal mechanisms that support an environment free from sexual harassment.
All trainings are available physically on-site at your location, in our training room, or via webinar. Prices available per session, per seat, and bundled packages.
