New State Laws Mandating Sexual Harassment Policies, Procedures and Training
States have started to pass mandatory sexual harassment training and policy requirements that employers must comply with. These new laws can be tricky and quite intricate regarding an employer’s compliance obligations. New York State, New York City and Delaware have recently passed laws mandating sexual harassment training, policies and procedures, and deadlines to comply are coming up fast. California has revised and added to its already-strict law requiring sexual harassment training to now include training of employees. In addition, many other states including Vermont, Rhode Island, Maryland and Louisiana also have added to their sexual harassment laws to make them more stringent.
Please join Melissa Fleischer to learn what your organization needs to do to ensure compliance with these significant laws and how to avoid potential liability for a failure to properly comply. Each law has its own unique requirements that employers who operate in that state must understand and comply with or face stiff legal consequences.
