The #MeToo movement has focused unprecedented attention on workplace sexual harassment – perhaps nowhere more so than in New York, where both the State and City have recently adopted broad anti-harassment legislation. These far-reaching measures, which will roll into effect from summer 2018 to spring 2019, generally seek to educate workers about available rights and remedies, expand existing protections to cover broader classes of workers and remove perceived obstacles to raising sexual harassment claims. Even employers with well-developed harassment prevention programs will need to make updates to comply with these new requirements.

• Getting past the hashtags and advising your C-suite
• Comparing New York’s training and policy requirements to established federal guidance
• Improving training programs and promoting workforce engagement
• Best practices for investigating and addressing claims of harassment
• Understanding how the new legislation affects the arbitration and settlement of harassment claims
