New York State and New York City each have passed sweeping measures intended to combat 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. Similarly, Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to sign the New York City Council’s legislation into law soon. These laws impose employer responsibilities and restrictions including mandatory training; prohibitions on arbitration and confidentiality clauses; and specific policy requirements.
Jackson Lewis attorneys will discuss the highlights of the new laws and dive into the complexities of ensuring compliance.
Topics will include:
New training requirements;
Restrictions on arbitration clauses and nondisclosure agreements;
Sexual harassment prevention policy requirements;
New state contracts procedures;
Strategies for how employers can effectively implement these laws.
