Preventing Sexual Harassment for Employees – New York Training
Sexual harassment is a pervasive and persistent problem in our society and in our workplaces. It’s being talked about more than ever before as more people are coming forward and sharing their stories of being sexually harassed. In the wake of the #MeToo movement and the resulting nationwide conversation about sexual harassment, the State of New York and the City of New York passed legislation requiring employers to step up and do more to prevent sexual harassment.
Who has to be trained and how often do employees have to be trained?
