New York is at the forefront of enacting laws requiring employers to review and evaluate their sexual-harassment prevention programs and provide training and written policies to employees. In April 2018, Gov. Andrew Cuomo updated the state’s sexual harassment laws as part of the state budget, requiring employers to complete sexual harassment training by Oct. 9, 2019, then annually thereafter. One month later, Mayor Bill de Blasio enacted the Stop Sexual Harassment Act, requiring New York City employers to conduct sexual harassment training by April 2019, then on an annual basis.
