FLGIC Seminar:

NYS Sexual Harassment Training  for Non-Profits and Small Businesses under 10 employees


Under New York State guidelines, every public and private employer is required to adopt a sexual harassment prevention program which includes annual sexual harassment training, sexual harassment policies, and specific procedures that meet or exceed the requirements outlined in a model notice provided by the NYS Department of Labor and the Division of Human Rights.

We know the cost of this can be a deterrent for smaller organizations so the Finger Lakes Grant Information Center (FLGIC) is sponsoring three opportunities for non-profits and businesses with less than 10 employees can receive this training free of cost.  The first 45 to 50 minutes will be for the employee portion and another 20 minutes for anyone wishing to take the supervisory portion.
