Buffalo Law Journal: New York Enacts Sweeping Sexual Harassment Legislation

Bob Heary, Business Services Practice Group leader, and Mike Sciotti, partner, had their article "New York Enacts Sweeping Sexual Harassment Legislation" published by Buffalo Law Journal. The full article can be located below.

"In the wake of Harvey Weinstein and #MeToo, New York State recently enacted legislation that impacts all private- and public-sector employers in addressing issues of sexual harassment in the workplace. The new legislation, signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on April 12, amends and supplements the New York Labor Law, Executive Law, Finance Law, Civil Practice Law and Rules, Public Officers Law, and General Obligations Law.

The changes, some of which are applicable beginning in July and others of which become effective in October, will impact how employers train and educate their workforce; whether and how employers settle claims of sexual harassment; the terms and conditions of an employee's employment; and will create a new source of potential employer liability."
