Anti-Sexual Harassment Training

Under Local Law 96 of 2018, employers with 15 or more employees are required to conduct annual anti-sexual harassment training for all employees.  New York State Law requires that employers of one or more employees must conduct anti-sexual harassment training for all employees.

The Commission has developed an online training that will satisfy both the New York State and New York City anti-sexual harassment training requirements.
