Who is protected?
All employees and non-employees such as independent contractors, subcontractors, vendors, consultants, temporary workers or any other individuals providing services in the workplace. This also applies to individuals employed by other companies contracted to provide services such as equipment repair technicians or cleaning services.
What are the employer’s training responsibilities?
The 2019 New York State Budget Bill updated the state’s sexual harassment laws, and requires all employers to:
- Adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy
- Establish a complaint form for employees to report incidents of sexual harassment
- Provide managers and employees sexual harassment prevention training on an annual basis starting October 9, 2018.
