Ms. Gefsky discusses new regulations concerning sexual harassment in the workplace that the New York State legislature passed as part of its budget package. The bill, now-signed by Governor Cuomo, prohibits employers from requiring pre-dispute arbitration agreements for sexual harassment cases and from subjecting sexual harassment settlements to non-disclosure agreements. Employers will be required to have a written sexual harassment policy and annual training for all employees. The legislation also expands protections to independent contractors, among other provisions.
