New York State Provides Model Sexual Harassment Prevention Materials

On October 9, 2018, New York published final versions of compliance materials for employers on a dedicated website, which include: (1) a model sexual harassment policy; (2) model sexual harassment training materials; (3) a model complaint form; (4) Frequently Asked Questions; and (5) lists of minimal standards for sexual harassment policies and trainings for employers who wish to prepare their own policies and trainings.  Significantly, by October 9, 2019, employers must provide all employees with sexual harassment prevention training, either using the model created by the state or a comparable version that meets the minimum standard.  There are also important new requirements regarding confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements for resolved sexual harassment claims.  For more information, see:
