Sexual harassment is unlawful pursuant to the New York Human Rights Law § 296.1 (codified as N.Y. Executive Law, Article 15), and the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII (codified as 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq.). Reference.
If your company operates in NYC, the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act also applies. Effective April 2019, New York City employers with 15 or more employees must ensure all employees are trained annually. Reference.
