In April 2018, New York State (NYS) enacted a law imposing new anti-sexual harassment requirements on all private employers based in New York, regardless of size. To help employers comply with the new policy and training requirements, the state released draft versions of a model anti-sexual harassment policy, a complaint form and training materials on August 23, 2018. See “What Fund Managers Need to Know About Recent Developments to the New Anti-Sexual Harassment Policy and Training Requirements in New York City and New York State

Employers may adapt and use these materials to comply with the new policy and training requirements and meet newly revised deadlines. This article highlights the key changes made to the draft materials, as well as the new deadlines for compliance with the training requirements.
