I recently wrote about the sweeping workplace rules designed to prevent sexual harassment here. As of this month, employers are required to adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy and provide annual sexual harassment prevention training. Both the policy and the training are required to meet or exceed minimum standards set by a model policy and model training program provided by the Department of Labor and Division of Human Rights. At the time I wrote about these requirements, only drafts of the model policy and training were available.
The final model policy and training module are now available here.
If you would like to schedule a consultation to talk about how this legislation may impact your business, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 585.512.3542.
