Preventing Sexual Harassment for Managers – New York
Preventing Sexual Harassment for NY Managers 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. The New York State Budget Bill (the NYS Law” and the Stop Sexual Harassment in New York City Act (the NYC Act) aim to address workplace sexual harassment by expanding the rights and means of redress for employees while imposing additional requirements and liabilities on employers.
