Big I New York is working with a training organization on a potential solution for members to conduct the new mandatory sexual harassment training. Director of Member Engagement Christine Neet and AVP of Information and Education Tim Dodge met with the Albany-area company on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
A provision in the 2018-19 New York State budget requires all employers to annually provide training to their employees on sexual harassment prevention. The first annual training must be completed by Oct. 9, 2019.
The program we discussed would offer compliant training in various formats, including in-person, live webinars, and on-demand web-based learning. Details have not been finalized, as we are awaiting a written proposal from the provider. We will announce future developments via email and posts on this website.
