Legal Updates: Employers Are Required To Provide New Employees With Sexual Harassment Prevention Training on or before First Day of Work

New York State recently amended its antidiscrimination laws and clarified when new employees must be provided the Sexual Harassment Prevention Notice. The State’s updated guidance recommends that at the time of hiring (or at the beginning of their first day of work) employees must be provided the employer's sexual harassment prevention policy and the information presented at the employers sexual harassment prevention training program (in English and in the primary language of the employee).

Notice must be delivered in writing (in print or email). The notice must link to or include the policy and links to training materials. 

Under existing New York State law, employers must provide sexual harassment training and policies on an annual basis to all employees.
