What Businesses Should Know About New York Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
New York is at the forefront of addressing sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace, including legislation enacted in 2018 and 2019, and updated guidance issued by New York State in October 2019 and New York City in January 2020, which expands sexual-harassment prevention training requirements and affects many more organizations.
How frequently must employees be trained?
Employers must provide each employee with the training at least once per year. For simplicity and to coordinate with other harassment training laws in New York City and in other states, most employers choose to track completion based on the calendar year.
When must employees get trained?
New York State encourages training of new employees (and interns, freelancers, and independent contractors) as soon as possible, as employers may be liable for the actions of employees immediately upon hire. New employees who work in New York City for 80 or more hours per year on a full or part-time basis must be trained after 90 days of hire.
Who needs to take the training?
According to New York State, and “employee” includes all workers, regardless of immigration status; this includes exempt or non-exempt employees, part-time workers, seasonal workers, and temporary workers. Furthermore, in New York City, any worker (including employees, interns, freelancers, and independent contractors) who work or will work in New York City for more than 80 hours in a calendar year AND for at least 90 days must be trained, regardless of whether the employer is based in New York City. If a worker is based elsewhere but regularly interacts with other employees in New York City, even if they are not physically present in the city, they should be trained as well.
