It is a truly monumental year for workplace sexual harassment prevention legislation.  After California and New York’s enactment of legislation that requires employers to provide sexual harassment training to virtually all employees, states across the country are following suit. 

A new legislative landscape and a desire to stay out of a potential harassment spotlight are forcing employers to rethink their harassment prevention strategy. Employers, especially those operating in multiple states, are looking for ways to effectively deliver impactful training, comply with these mandates, and positively affect their cultures.

During this webinar Samia Kirmani from Jackson Lewis, P.C.  and Elizabeth Bille from EVERFI will explore:

  • An overview of the states with mandatory legislative requirements: New York, California, Connecticut, and Delaware
  • What’s on the horizon for pending legislation in other states 
  • Strategies for conducting compliant, impactful training
