Available Now from HR Works: Updated Web-Based NYS Harassment Training

HR Works is pleased to announce an update to the New York State Harassment Prevention Trainings for Employees and Managers within our online Learning Management System (LMS), in response to the launch of New York’s free and confidential hotline that provides legal advice to individuals experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace.  

During the web-based training, users are now notified that anyone in New York State can call the confidential, toll-free hotline to get counselling and help relating to sexual harassment.

The HR Works Learning Management System offers over 300 on-demand, professionally produced courses that keep our clients up-to-speed with changing employment laws and fuel the career growth and development of their workforce. Sample training topics include:

  • Harassment Prevention— State Mandated Trainings for Employees & Managers in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, and New York (also available in Spanish)
  • HIPAA—Your Obligations Under the Privacy Rule
  • Cyber Security—Steps to Avoid Risk
  • SHIELD Act—Privacy & Information Security Training
  • FLSA—Wage and Hour Awareness for Managers
  • EEO—Lawful Hiring
  • …and more!

Next Steps for Employers

HR Works’ LMS Clients can be assured that their online HR Works’ Harassment Prevention Trainings comply with all state-specific training requirements, including information about the hotline for New York employees.

As we previously reported, it is expected that New York employers will need to update their harassment prevention policies and training materials to ensure that they include reference to this hotline. New York employers who deliver their own harassment prevention trainings should incorporate information about the hotline into their trainings moving forward.
