Author: ADP Admin/Monday, February 3, 2020/Categories: Compliance Corner , State Compliance Update, New York

New York City has expanded its sexual harassment prevention training requirements to cover independent contractors and freelancers effective Jan. 11, 2020. Starting Jan. 11, all independent contractors and freelancers are protected from employment discrimination and harassment under the City Human Rights Law.


New York City employers with 15 or more employees must provide all employees with annual sexual harassment prevention training.

Added Requirements:

New York City now requires these employers to provide annual harassment training to independent contractors and freelance workers who work for the employer for:

·       More than 80 hours in a calendar year; and

·       At least 90 days (does not need to be consecutive)

Independent contractors and freelancers do not need to take the training at each workplace where they work over the course of a year. These workers may provide proof that they completed sexual harassment prevention training at a previous workplace within the last year.

Compliance Recommendations:

New York City employers should review their training practices to ensure compliance with the new requirements. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
