Harassment Prevention for
New York Employers
How to comply with New York’s
new anti-sexual harassment laws.
Whether motivated by the public discourse resulting from the #MeToo movement or the deadlines of state and local requirements, now is the time for New York employers to act.
Reducing your legal exposure requires more than simply putting your employees through sexual harassment training and posting your policy in the breakroom.
A solid harassment prevention program educates, reinforces, and demonstrates your company’s commitment to maintaining a safe and productive workplace. Compli’s Harassment Prevention Quick Start Program, developed with the EEOC’s best practices, does just that.
