Sexual Harassment

Under the law, there are two categories of sexual harassment in the workplace; quid pro quo and a hostile work environment.  The most common, in today’s workplace is the accusation of a hostile work environment, leading to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and fines.  Many leaders, supervisors, and staff members, unaware of what constitutes a hostile work environment inadvertently contribute to the problem.  In addition, a hostile work environment has been shown to reduce worker productivity and overall retention. 

Every employer in New York State is required to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training pursuant to Section 201-g of the Labor Law. Employees should receive training upon initial hiring and annually thereafter.
