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:

In the Fiscal Year 2019 budget, the legislature passed a measure requiring all New York State workers to receive training on sexual harassment prevention.
“Every employee must be trained by today, but there is no apparent penalty for not doing it,” Andrew Rawson, with Traliant CLO, said. “So even if you don’t get it done today, just like being late filing your taxes, better just to get it done late and don’t just say I missed the deadline, so forget it.”
Traliant is providing training for more than 500 companies in New York State. Rawson says the major requirement is that whether it be online or in person
TIMES UNION, October 9, 2019 – Employers had until Wednesday to comply with a mandate from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and state lawmakers, which was spurred by activists and intended to foster harassment-free workplaces.

EMPLOYEE BENEFIT NEWS, October 8, 2019 – There was a time when sexual harassment training was a “just check the box, let’s just get this over with” annual event, says Andrew Rawson, chief learning officer for Traliant, a company that provides sexual harassment training. It was “like renewing your driver’s license or renewing your car registration,” he says. “As long as you have it in your glove compartment, you don’t ever think about it again. That was what sexual harassment training was relegated to.”
No more. Many city and state training laws have passed since 2017, the year allegations of sexual harassment and assault surfaced against powerful film producer Harvey Weinstein — causing a scandal that in turn gave rise to the #MeToo movement.
