New Workplace Requirements to Combat Sexual Harassment


Per the Stop Sexual Harassment in New York City Act, effective September 6, 2018, New York City employers are required to post an anti-sexual harassment rights and responsibilities poster in employee breakrooms or other common areas. These posters must be posted in both English and Spanish. Employers can also choose to post the poster in other languages.

Effective September 6, 2018, New York City employers are also required to distribute a fact sheet on sexual harassment to all employees at the time of hiring. Employers can do so through a separate document or by including the fact sheet within the Employee Handbook, provided the employee receives and is required to review the handbook at the time of hire.
