  • September 5, 2018

Beginning September 6, 2018, all New York City employers must distribute the New York City Commission on Human Rights’ mandatory fact sheet on the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act” to all new hires. Employers also may wish to distribute the fact sheet to existing employees, even though that is not expressly required by the law or by the city notice.

Additionally, employers must conspicuously post information on the law. The fact sheet and posting are available on the Commission’s dedicated website.
