    (Section 201-G, NYS Labor Law)

    Workplace Sexual Harassment Training is now required, penalties to be announced. As of October 9, 2018 all New York State companies will be required to provide policies, postings and conduct annual sexual harassment training to its employees, regardless of the company size. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that in order for companies to reduce its liability for harassment claims, it must train its employees and supervisors.

    Following the “Me Too” movement, companies are seeing sexual harassment not just as a legal liability, which it has always been, but a reputational and business risk as well.

  4. Google employees walk out over women’s treatment

    Google’s staff in over 20 offices around the world are walking out today to protest the company’s treatment of women.

    Forced arbitration: Anger over how sexual misconduct allegations are handled at the tech giant has boiled over. The employees are particularly unhappy about the use of forced arbitration at the firm after sexual misconduct allegations, as it means victims forgo their right to sue.

    Why now? A series of scandalous sexual misconduct cases have emerged in the press over recent days. Andy Rubin, who created the Android operating system, was paid $90 million when he left the firm in 2014, despite a “credible” allegation of sexual misconduct.

    On Tuesday another executive, Richard DeVaul, resigned. He’s alleged to have made unwanted advances towards a woman he was seeking to hire. The five demands…

    • An end to forced arbitration in harassment and discrimination cases.
    • A commitment to end pay and opportunity inequity.
    • A publicly disclosed sexual harassment transparency report.
    • A clear, uniform, globally inclusive process for reporting sexual misconduct safely and anonymously.
    • Elevate the chief diversity officer to answer to the CEO and make recommendations to the board of directors. Appoint an employee representative to the board.

    The CEO’s response: Sundar Pichai has said he supports the employees’ right to take action. “I understand the anger and disappointment that many of you feel” he wrote in an email to staff, adding that he is “fully committed” to making progress on the issue. Google has sacked 48 other employees for sexual harassment in the last two years, he said.
