From Lexology, Epstein Becker Green reminds everyone that New York’s Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act is now effective and includes rules for independent contractors:
The Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act is now in effect. New York employers must provide annual anti-harassment training for their workers, and there are specific rules that apply to independent contractors.
Remember, contractors shouldn’t be harassed, and they can also create exposure if they engage in harassment. NYC employers: Don’t forget your contractors!
