By October 9, 2019, employers with one or more employees who work at least “a portion of their time” physically inside New York state lines are required to provide Sexual Harassment Prevention & Awareness Training to those individuals.
It should be noted that this requirement pertains to employers headquartered outside of New York, but have employees performing work within the state.
According to JD Supra, NYC Covered Employers must provide sexual harassment prevention training that complies with the NYC Law to:
- “Employees who are based in NYC, work more than 80 hours in a calendar year, and have been employed for at least 90 days;
- Employees who are not based in NYC but work or will work in NYC for more than 80 hours in a calendar year and for at least 90 days; and
- Employees who are not based in NYC but regularly interact with employees located in NYC.”
