Mayor Bill de Blasio signs The Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act
It's Against The Law. The NYC Human Rights Law, one of the strongest anti-discrimination laws in the nation, protects against discrimination based on gender, which includes sexual harassment. The New York City Council has passed the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act (the “Act”), a package of bills aimed at addressing and preventing sexual harassment in the workplace.1
Things To Know:
Effective July 8, 2018 – City contractors will be required to include their practices, policies, and procedures “relating to preventing and addressing sexual harassment” as part of an existing report required for certain contracts pursuant to the City Charter and corresponding rules.
Effective September 6, 2018 – Employers will be required to conspicuously display an anti-sexual harassment rights and responsibilities poster and distribute an information sheet on sexual harassment to new hires
Effective April 1, 2019 – Employers with 15 or more employees (including interns) will be required to conduct annual anti-sexual harassment training for all employees, including supervisory and managerial employees.
