The Boyd Law Group, PLLC just filed race discrimination and retaliation.
The Me Too movement has had an impact here in New York. Recent changes in the New York State and New York City sexual harassment laws, some of which are now coming into effect, will require employers to provide annual anti-harassment training to employees and to implement potentially new anti-harassment policies. The changes also: 1) require that a “standard complaint form” be provided to employees with harassment claims; 2) prohibit non-disclosure obligations in sexual harassment settlements or agreements unless the complainant prefers confidentiality; and 3) prohibit employers from mandating arbitration as the forum to adjudicate claims of sexual harassment.
