New York state and New York City recently enacted new requirements for employers in regards to sexual harassment prevention. Effective September 6, 2018, employers will be required to display an anti-sexual harassment rights and responsibilities poster in a visible way in employee break rooms or other areas of the workplaces where employees commonly gather. The New York City Human Rights Commission has made this required poster and information sheet available on its website. Additionally, effective April 1, 2019, all employers with 15 or more employees will be required to conduct annual interactive sexual harassment training for all employees. The New York City Human Rights Commission has not made a model training program available yet but plans to by the end of the year.
