 New York Sexual Harassment Prevention Training


The New York State Human Rights Law requires every employer in New York State to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training every year. The law applies to all employers regardless of size, and includes all workers, regardless of immigration status, including: exempt, non-exempt, part-time, seasonal, and temporary.

The Law

Section 201-g of the New York Labor Law requires employers to provide:

  Annual sexual harassment prevention training
  A sexual harassment notice distributed prior to, or at the start of the first day of work, which includes:
      › A sexual harassment prevention policy
      › An explanation of sexual harassment according to the Department of Labor and the Division of Human Rights
      › A copy of the training
  The notice, policy, and training must be provided in both English and the employee’s primary language if it is Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Haitian-Creole, Bengali, or Italian.

Employee Requirement 

•  Annual training
•  New employees must be trained within 30 days of hire, including:

       › Part-time employees

If your organization has employees in New York as well as in states with a different or no sexual harassment training mandate, we will work with you to ensure the most effective deployment possible. Many organizations in this situation train employees with state-version courses where needed, then use general courses for staff in states without mandates.  Other versions of Once & For All, include: 
California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Washington


Instructor-Led Training (ILT) is conducted in a classroom setting. Trainers facilitate the class using the New York Once & For All Leader's Guide, videos, and other support materials. For details on the ILT option and how specific New York training requirements are met, please see our Interactive Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Compliance Guide.
