New York Employment Updates for 2020: Learn How to Make Your Company Compliant in the New Year - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with new laws impacting employers operating in New York for 2020.

Effective February 8, 2020, the New York Human Rights Law will cover all employers of one or more employees, including the state and all political subdivisions.

And, thanks to a new law that took effect October 11, 2019, employers now may be liable for an unlawful discriminatory practice against a nonemployee in the employer’s workplace. The law also lowers the burden for proving harassment against an entity, taking the “severe or pervasive” requirement out of it.

On the arbitration front, employers must now be extremely careful about how their employment agreements are worded with regard to discrimination and retaliation claims to ensure they do not misstep under another law that took effect on October 11.

Use this on-demand webinar with Charles H. Kaplan of the New York-based law firm of Sills Cummis & Gross P.C. for the rundown of new compliance obligations for employers operating in New York.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to: 

  • Identify which newly enacted or soon-to-take-effect laws will impact your New York workplace(s) 
  • Evaluate whether your sexual harassment training will hold up under state law
  • Recognize the practical impact the new law taking effect on harassment will have on your compliance obligations under state law
  • Discern whether newly enacted or soon-to-take-effect municipal laws, such as those in New York City, apply to your organization
  • Evaluate the ways in which you will need to update your employee handbook and policies to comply with New York law
