[Webinar] How to Comply with State-Mandated Harassment Laws

From New York to Vermont:
Top Tips for Complying with the Recent Surge in State-Mandated Harassment Prevention Training Requirements

While use of the #MeToo hashtag may have slowed, the pace at which state legislatures are working on sexual harassment issues has not. In fact, bills are moving through state legislatures at an increasing rate. If you’re tasked with complying with these new requirements, especially in NY state and NYC where the implementation dates are right around the corner, you likely have questions about how to implement a program that is both compliant and will address larger issues of workplace culture.

Watch the recording where Emtrain’s CEO, Janine Yancey, and our VP of Workplace Strategy, Patti Perez, discuss all things training. Janine and Patti have a wealth of experience—from guiding legislators to write more realistic laws, to writing the regulations clarifying implementation, to working closely with clients as harassment laws go live and are revised over time. They’ll offer expert insights on what to expect before and after states implement new laws.

Prior to the passing of the AB 1825 harassment training regulations, Janine successfully defended the City of Roseville in a 5-week harassment jury trial and used the City’s harassment training efforts to help persuade the jury to return a verdict for the City.
