Legal Alert to All Employers with Employees in New York State

If you are subject to the New York or California laws requiring sexual harassment prevention training, be aware that time is running out to comply with the new legal requirements.
The upcoming deadlines for training under the new laws are:
  • NY: October 9, 2019
  • CA: January 1, 2020
New York State law applies to employers with any employees who work at least a portion of their time within the state. California law applies to employers with 5 or more employees. For further information about training requirements, please click here 

Regardless of whether you work with our firm or a different provider to secure the necessary trainings for your employees, if you are an employer covered by the laws of California or New York regarding employee training, it is imperative that you provide the required training by the deadline to avoid violating the law.
