Legislation that would make changes to the state’s laws on sexual harassment and discrimination passed the General Assembly. The law would, among other things, expand the sexual harassment training requirements, increase the time to file a civil rights charge, and increase the remedies available to complainants at the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.
However, word on the street is that other legislation designed to fix issues in this new legislation could be forthcoming, as soon as today. When the dust settles on this legislation, we will provide comprehensive analysis of the changes so that you are prepared to comply with the new law.
The attorneys in the Labor and Employment Law practice group at Berchem Moses, PC are available to assist you with navigating these changes to the sexual harassment law, as well as any other labor and employment related matters.
