ATTENTION NYC EMPLOYERS: Did You Comply With The New Sexual Harassment Notice Requirements?

The new New York City sexual harassment law (Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act — Local Law 95 of 2018 and  Local Law 96 of 2018) requires all New York City employers distribute the New York City Commission on Human Rights’ mandatory fact sheet on the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act” to all new employees starting September 6, 2018.

In addition, starting September 6, 2018, all New York City employers are required to post information in the workplace regarding the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act.  The required poster is available in both English and Spanish  and must be published in other languages.

Finally, while not required, we strongly recommend that all  all New York City employers distribute the New York City Commission on Human Rights’ mandatory fact sheet on the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act” to all existing employees.
