Key Workplace Updates for 2019

As 2019 begins, it is important for employers to review upcoming legislation changes that may affect their policies and workforce.

These updates include the introduction of mandatory anti-sexual harassment training in states such as New York and Delaware, the legalization of marijuana across several states, gender identity classification requirements, and state equal pay laws.

Regarding mandatory anti-harassment training, Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. states that:

Since October 2017, three jurisdictions have enacted laws instituting (or expanding) a requirement that employees receive anti-sexual harassment training on a periodic basis. New York and Delaware will now require annual training for all covered employees, while California will require training every other year. California, Connecticut, and Maine require anti-harassment training for managers on a biannual basis.
