Otsego County Chamber to host NYS Mandated Anti-Harassment Policies and Sexual Harassment Training Wednesday, October 9, 2019 1:00p.m. at Northern Eagle Beverages

Under Section 201-G, New York State mandates ALL employers (with as few as one employee) to adopt a sexual harassment prevention policy as well as to train ALL employees on sexual harassment prevention.  The policies were to be in place by October 9, 2018.  Initial trainings must be completed by October 9, 2019 and then annual thereafter.  Trainings for employees and managers/owners are not the same.  Managers and Owners have additional responsibilities and they must be trained on these. The policies and trainings have minimum requirements as outlined in Section 201-G. 

Please join chamber member, Pinnacle Human Resources, LLC for the training for Managers and Owners.  This interactive training will go through the minimum requirement set out by this law as well as best practices to strengthen your company practices.  Pinnacle Human Resources will also identify areas that must be customized for your individual company.  You will leave this training with the confidence that you have been trained and you will be able to facilitate the required training for your employees.
