Sexual Harassment Prevention / Anti-Harassment Services
You can’t afford to ignore the risk of sexual harassment claims in your workplace.
This October, sweeping new sexual harassment prevention laws went into effect in New York State, and they include strict rules on the content and wording of specific policy statements and on how employers conduct annual training for all employees in compliance with state regulations and guidelines. California also signed anti-sexual-harassment legislation, as did Delaware, with both states’ new laws set to go into effect on January 1, 2019.
Even if you don’t operate a business in New York, your state is probably heading in this direction—if they aren’t already there yet. Harassment claims are on the rise everywhere and you need to keep your organization protected from the costly litigation and hard-to-repair damage to your reputation. Our team of experienced, well-versed HR experts can also assist you with updating and maintaining your workplace policies and environments to help keep employees feeling respected, safe and happy. We also offer modern, engaging and effective sexual harassment prevention training for employees and management, and we customize the experience to make sure it meets your organization’s unique needs and compliance requirements.
