New York City's "Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act" (Local Law 96 (2018)) requires employers must provide Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for their employees ANNUALLY.
The NYC Law applies to:
- Employers who have or had 15 or more employees at any point in the previous calendar year
- Employees and independent contractors who work more than 80 hours in a calendar year and work for at least 90 days.
· Keep a record of all trainings, including a signed employee acknowledgement for at least 3 years.
· Give new employees a sexual harassment prevention Fact Sheet.
Note: New York State requires that all employers have a sexual harassment prevention policy. The State Department of Labor has published a model policy.
