CT Expands Employer Harassment Training Obligations
Connecticut’s new “Time’s Up” law, which goes into effect October 1, 2019, will require employers with three or more employees to “provide two hours of sexual harassment training to all employees”.
According to Littler:
“Beginning on October 1, 2019, all Connecticut employers will have to satisfy certain mandatory sexual harassment training requirements. The amount and timing of the training, however, will depend on the employer’s size.”
All employees hired on or after the deadline are required to receive the training within six months of hire.
The law also mandates that all employers (regardless of size) in the state of Connecticut must provide sexual harassment training to supervisory personnel by October 1, 2020.
