SDDS BULLETIN Earlier this year, both the State
of New York and the City of New York passed sexual harassment prevention legislation that ulti- mately affects employers in the State of New York. This includes ALL private dental offices, regard- less of the number of employees that you have.
To keep this short, these are the things you, as the employer, must do. 1. Develop and distribute a written sexual harassment policy to all employees. Visit http://bit. ly/Model_Policy to download a model policy developed by the NY State Department of Labor. You can customize this policy so that it is specific to your practice simply by modifying those areas in yellow highlight. Be sure to print it and hand it out to every employee you have. You should have them sign an acknowledge- ment that they have in fact re- ceived the policy. Retain the signed acknowledgement in your employee files. THIS SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY. 2. Distribute a copy of the New York City Sexual Harassment Fact Sheet to all employees. A copy of the fact sheet is available at http://bit.ly/NYC_Fact_Sheet. There is no need to modify this fact sheet. Be sure to print it as is and hand it out to every employ- ee you have. You should have them sign an acknowledgement that they have in fact received the fact sheet. Retain the signed acknowl- edgement in your employee files. THIS SHOULD BE DONE IM- MEDIATELY. 3. Post a copy of the New York City Sexual Harassment Poster in a conspicuous area where em-
ployees congregate. The poster must be at least 8.5 by 14 inches in size, using at least 12-point font, and posted in both English and Spanish. A copy of the poster in English is available by visting http://bit.ly/NYCSH_English_ Poster. A copy of the Spanish poster is available at http://bit.ly/ NYCSH_Spanish_Poster. THIS SHOULD BE DONE IMME- DIATELY. 4. Lastly, employers in New York State have until October 9, 2019 to provide sexual harass- ment training to all their em- ployees. However, if you are a NY City employer with 15 or more employees, you will be required to conduct training effective April 1, 2019 and then on an annual basis thereafter. Nonetheless, NY State law trumps NY City law in this regard, so ALL NYC employ- ers will be required to provide training to their employees, re- gardless of the number of employ- ees.
The NYC Commission on Human Rights will develop and share an online training guide to be available on its website at https://on.nyc.gov/2D0epbj that will satisfy this requirement in the coming months. (We will advise you when that becomes available.) Employers may also choose to provide their own annual anti- sexual harassment training for employees, provided that it in- cludes the following elements: • An explanation of sexual ha- rassment as a form of unlawful discrimination under local law; • A statement that sexual harass- ment is also a form of unlawful discrimination under state and federal law;
• A description of what sexual harassment is, using examples; • Any internal complaint process available to employees through their employer to address sexual harassment claims; • The complaint process avail- able through the Commission, the New York State Division of Human Rights and the United States Equal Employment Op- portunity Commission, including contact information; • The prohibition of retaliation including examples; • Information concerning by- stander intervention, including but not limited to any resources that explain how to engage in b
