Today is the deadline for all New York State employers to formally adopt a workplace sexual harassment prevention policy. The state budget enacted last spring included new measures to combat sexual harassment in the workplace. The law, which had six parts with varying effective dates, required every employer to adopt a model sexual harassment prevention policy developed by the state Department of Labor or one that equals or exceeds the minimum standards provided by the model. Employers must provide copies of the adopted policy to all employees in writing. Read more:

UPDATE: Change in NYS deadline for mandatory sexual harassment training
We have been working under the belief that all employers in New York State must complete the first mandatory sexual harassment training between Oct. 9 and Dec. 31, 2018. However, today Gov. Cuomo announced the finalization of the draft required workplace policy and model training program. Among other things, the final version states that the training must be completed by Oct. 9 of next year. This obviously gives our members and their clients a lot more time to comply.
