By The Workplace Compliance Team

As you know as an employer in New York State, sexual harassment prevention training has been mandatory for a few years, and the NYS Department of Labor (DOL) has made model training programs and policy documents available on their website. Even though there are certain requirements for your training program set forth by the DOL, there are still additional things you should be doing to prevent harassment and discrimination.

You should:

  • Have a strong policy prohibiting discrimination and harassment.

  • Have a well-publicized policy and complaint procedure.

  • Use frequent re-publication and reminders.

  • Use a robust training program.

  • Have quick and appropriate responses to complaints.

  • Have impartial investigations.

  • Make sure management is leading by example.

Paragon is pleased to offer you NYS-compliant training for your workforce. But just how is our training different from the DOL’s?

  • First and foremost, it’s written by labor & employment attorneys.

  • It goes above and beyond NYS offered trainings, specifically regarding additional supervisor training.

  • It allows for individual or in-person group trainings. The group training is intended to be used if you have a group of people who don’t have workstations or if you just want to do one big training for a large number of people at the same time.

  • It’s web-based and user-friendly.

  • Robust tracking and reporting functions are available for managers.

  • It includes real-life examples and scenarios to work through to apply what you’ve just learned.
