Epstein Becker Green (April 20, 2018) - The 2018-2019 New York State Budget (“Budget”), which was enacted on April 12, 2018, includes several new state laws concerning sexual harassment in the workplace that will affect both public and private employers.  For those in New York City, similar proposed laws await Mayor Bill de Blasio’s signature and will likely become effective soon.  

The new state laws, which will take effect on various dates throughout 2018 or later, will impact private employers by (i) prohibiting mandatory pre-dispute arbitration clauses relating to sexual harassment complaints, (ii) banning nondisclosure agreements for sexual harassment claims, (iii) requiring employers to enact written sexual harassment policies and conduct annual sexual harassment preventative training for all employees, and (iv) expanding liability for sexual harassment claims to certain non-employees.
