New York State and New York City each have passed sweeping measures intended to combat sexual harassment in the workplace. The New York State budget, which Governor Andrew Cuomo signed on April 12, 2018, contains new sexual harassment prevention requirements applicable to all New York employers. On May 9, 2018, Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law similar legislation passed by the New York City Council. These laws impose significant employer responsibilities and restrictions, including mandatory training, prohibitions on arbitration and confidentiality clauses and specific policy requirements. This policy and annual training requirements represent the most significant legal change in this area in more than 25 years. This program will address compliance issues under the new laws, and provide a meaningful opportunity for discussion with the presenters and your peers.
