New York Enacts Sweeping Sexual Harassment Legislation

It is a brave new world in New York. The #MeToo movement propelled New York lawmakers to enact sweeping changes on sexual harassment that impact all private- and public-sector employers. Specifically, all New York employers are now required to establish a written sexual harassment policy and train employees each year on sexual harassment.

In addition, the new legislation:

  • Impacts whether and how employers settle claims
    of sexual harassment
  • Affects the terms and conditions of an employee's employment
  • Creates a new source of potential employer liability

Barclay Damon has created a series of legal alerts relating to this new legislation and its practical effects on employers. To obtain Part 1 of this series, which focuses on the amendments to the New York State Human Rights Law and New York State Labor Law that require employers to adopt a written sexual harassment policy and to provide yearly sexual harassment training, please CLICK HERE.
