Thursday, October 12, 2023.
10 am – 11 am.
Online via Zoom – link will be provided upon registration.
FREE Session – open to nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers in New York State.

Since 2018, New York State requires all employers, of any size, to conduct interactive sexual harassment prevention training annually for all employees, nonprofit board members, and volunteers. This training satisfies the state requirement, provides examples of situations and advises both employees and employers how to respond. Additionally, there is an opportunity to ask follow up questions either during the webinar or privately following it. Topics covered include the definition of sexual harassment, how to file a claim, investigations and case scenarios from both the original law and the 2019 and 2023 amendments to the law.
