Did you know that every employer in New York State is required to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training, in addition to adopting a sexual harassment prevention policy and complaint form to report alleged incidents of sexual harassment? This NY State mandated training can be a burden for small businesses with few staff, since many of the programs offered aim to be more cost effective for larger businesses with many employees and/or frequent new hires.


The Downtown Troy BID has contracted with Pro Knowledge to offer a reduced rate two-hour course on Harassment Prevention in the Workplace for small businesses. This course is compliant with Section 201-g of NYS Labor Law and can hold up to 100 attendees. This training will also include a 30 minute training following the two hour course, with information specific to managers. We recognize that there are many options for in person and online trainings that suit businesses of different shapes and sizes, and hope that this course can help local small businesses meet the requirements of these new laws.

This course is designed to introduce participants to both types of harassment claims (general harassment and sexual harassment), what forms of reporting and remedy are available to anyone who believes they have been harassed, and how to handle the intake of harassment complaints.
