Client Alert

Brownstein Client Alert, May 2, 2018

Effective April 1, 2019, companies with 15 or more employees will be subject to mandatory annual training requirements for employees in New York City. Part of the growing national trend to combat sexual misconduct in the workplace on the heels of the “#MeToo” movement, the New York City Council has mandated that all employees who work 80 or more hours in a calendar year (including part-time employees and interns) participate in “interactive training” within 90 days of hire and on an annual basis thereafter. Employees who have received training at a prior employer within the required time cycle are not required to be retrained until the next cycle.
