NY & NYC: Harassment Law Guidance

New York State and New York City employers will face several changes to legislation related to sexual harassment policies over the next 10 months.

From protections for non-employees to arbitration bans and training requirements, employers should review the upcoming legislation changes and begin to prepare to meet the new requirements.

This will include updates to employee handbooks, scheduling NY-compliant harassment training for employees, and notifications to employees, contractors, and vendors of these changes.

Ropes & Gray has designed a timeline of legislative changes for employers to be aware of, which includes the following dates:

  • July 11, 2018: NYC Sexual Harassment NDA’s Barred, NY State Sexual Harassment Arbitration Ban
  • September 6, 2018: NYC Poster and Information Sheet Requirement
  • October 9, 2018: NY State Anti-Harassment Policy Requirement, NY State Anti-Harassment Training Requirement
  • April 1, 2019: NYC Anti-Harassment Training Requirement
