For more than 20 years, our attorneys at Reavis Page Jump LLP have assisted employers and employees in mitigating risk and addressing allegations of harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, a growing number of cities and states have enacted broad new legal requirements and enforcement measures intended to combat sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination in the workplace. For example, as of October 9, 2018, employers in New York State are now required to provide annual anti-harassment training to their employees and to have sexual harassment prevention policies that meet or exceed certain minimum legal standards established by the state.
In response to this groundswell, RPJ teamed up with AltaClaro to make our interactive training programs available online to companies, organizations and employees across the country, supplementing the in-person trainings that we have long provided to our clients.
These engaging, interactive in-person and online programs are led by attorneys and human resources professionals of our firm, drawing on our unique perspective from decades of deep experience in the legal trenches of employment law, discrimination prevention and dispute resolution.
The training courses are designed to fulfill the legal requirements of sexual harassment prevention training under the laws of New York State, New York City, Connecticut and California in effect as of January 1, 2019. While Massachusetts and New Jersey do not require training by law, the online courses also include state-specific supplements available to employers in these states.
