The new requirements aim to address harassment and discrimination, as well as to better train managers. Employers will now have to provide employees with documentation containing additional information about what constitutes unlawful harassment and discrimination. In addition, employers are required to create an anti-harassment and discrimination policy, provide additional training to supervisors (this applies to employers with 50 or more employees), retain training records for two years, and provide additional religious accommodations.
