Mandatory sexual harassment training for managers

opinion

New York City's council passed an ordinance in April requiring employers in the city to provide sexual harassment training, a measure slated to take effect next spring. With this on employers' radars already, the statewide legislation puts city employers at the intersection of the two.

The legislation, along with other such mandates across the county, may have come as a response to the MeToo movement, which has put a spotlight on American workplaces and how they respond to sexual harassment. Some employers have taken quick action following the rise of the movement, but many employers have not updated their sexual harassment policies and or strategies, research shows.

What's more, it appears the problem is still pervasive in many sectors, like the technology industry and academia.
