It is crucial for New York City employers to familiarize themselves with New York sexual harassment training requirements for both New York State and New York City in order to maintain compliance under both laws.

There are many New York State employment law obligations that employers should be mindful of, including the responsibility of implementing and distributing a written anti-harassment policy as well as well as having all of their employees sign an acknowledgement form that attests that the employee attended the sexual harassment prevention training.

A critical aspect of New York employment laws in New York is that employers are held accountable for the prevention of workplace sexual harassment in cases where the “employer knew or should have known” that the sexual harassment was in fact occurring, and they are expected to take appropriate corrective action to avoid legal repercussion.
