  • Description

    Over the last year, New York has passed some groundbreaking anti-sexual harassment legislative package. In April 2018, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation setting a deadline for employers to adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy and conduct employee training. The law also prohibits employers from including non-disclosure agreements in sexual harassment settlements except with additional document concurrence as well the use of mandatory arbitration clauses in workplace harassment suits.

    Immediately after, Mayor de Blasio followed suit with a Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act aimed at policy implementation and employee training. This CLE course will address the compliance aspect of these statutes as well as the risk management benefits for employers who comply. The course will explain the compliance process and explain the risks in failure to comply. Presenter Richard H. Waxman, an experienced management-side employment law specialist, will provide insight not found in case law.
