Legal Update - September 2018 Newsletter

Yogi Patel - Friday, September 07, 2018

Dear valued clients and supporters: This month's newsletter will focus primarily on deadlines for employers to comply with recently passed New York State and City laws related to sexual harassment in the workplace.

As of yesterday (September 6, 2018), all New York City employers must display the anti-sexual harassment in the workplace poster published by the New York City Commission on Human Rights (the "Commission"). A copy of the poster can be found here. For now, the poster is only available in English, but employers will be required to display the poster in Spanish once the Commission publishes one. Employers should regularly check with the Commission or their legal counsel to ensure compliance with this requirement.

Likewise, also by September 6, 2018, employers must either provide an anti-sexual harassment factsheet published by the Commission or incorporate its contents into their employee manuals or handbooks. A copy of the factsheet can be found here.

Finally, as we previously reported, by October 9, 2018, all employers in New York State must have in place a sexual harassment policy and must implement sexual harassment training for all employees. Employers are encouraged to ensure that their respective policies and trainings are in compliance with the law and tailored to their specific business needs.

Readers are encouraged to follow us on Twitter (@lloydpatelllp) and Facebook to receive updates on these and other issues throughout the month.
