The New York City Council passed a package of bills this week aimed at addressing sexual harassment at work — one of the strongest legislative responses yet to a national conversation about misconduct in the workplace.
The new training rule will apply to any private employer with more than 15 people on its payroll. Managers and supervisors will also be required to complete training, according to the bill’s text.
The legislation, called the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act, taps the city’s commission on human rights to develop an “online interactive” program that can be used to satisfy the training requirement.
If you work for a large company, chances are you’ve already come across one such online training module.
