Quest CE Offers Solution for NY Training Requirement

MILWAUKEE –September 28, 2018– Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the availability of anti-sexual harassment training, as well as a sexual harassment prevention policy, designed to meet New York State’s “Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace” law, which takes effect October 9, 2018.

Under the law, all New York employers are required to provide their employees with annual anti-sexual harassment training, as well as a sexual harassment prevention policy. Employees must complete the sexual harassment prevention training before January 1, 2019, and all new employees must complete training within 30 calendar days of their start date.

“With sexual harassment accusations topping headlines across the nation, a handful of states have taken it upon themselves to enforce legislation designed to mitigate sexual harassment actions from occurring in the workplace,” said EVP of Sales, Marketing and Client Services, Alex Krenke. “New York is the latest state to implement state-mandated prevention training, but we anticipate this trend to continue in the future.”

Using interactive case studies, Quest CE’s new course titled, “NY Combating Sexual Harassment in the Workforce” offers a detailed overview of what sexual harassment is, while providing examples of what is and is not acceptable behavior in the workplace. Through Quest CE’s compliance management platform, firms can easily deliver and track training completions for end-to-end compliance.

In addition to the new training requirement, employers in the state of New York are required to provide a sexual harassment prevention policy that meets or exceeds the state’s minimum standards. Quest CE’s policy template covers these standards and includes such information as: examples of sexual harassment, federal and state sexual harassment laws, a standard compliant form, and much more.
