CRAIN’S NEW YORK BUSINESS, October 9, 2019 – The deadline to comply with a state law requiring that all employers have a system for providing interactive workplace sexual harassment training arrived today. The law, passed last October, requires businesses to train all employees annually. Crain’s detailed the new city and state sexual harassment training standards in an article last month:
Deadlines are approaching for businesses to comply with workplace sexual harassment training rules put in place last fall by the city and state.
The state law requires that all employers have a system for providing digital interactive annual sexual harassment training by Oct. 9. The city, meanwhile, required that employers start offering harassment training this past April 1, with a mandate that all employees complete the annual training within 12 months.
