Although much of the workforce may be remote during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, neither New York State, New York City, nor California has postponed their mandatory anti-harassment training deadlines.

Similarly, in New Jersey, courts continue to consider an employer’s anti-harassment training in evaluating the strength of an important affirmative defense in hostile environment cases. In addition, the State’s legislature is considering a bill that would make annual anti-harassment training a requirement in New Jersey.

In light of this, many employers have decided to move ahead during the pandemic with virtual trainings on a variety of topics, including:

  • Anti-Harassment/Discrimination
  • Combatting Unconscious Bias
  • How to be an Upstander
  • Civility/Respect in the Workplace
  • Workshops for Human Resources Professionals

To assist its clients with trainings in the current environment, NFC has taken their established in-person training courses and created remote programs that can be delivered via videoconference by the Firm’s engaging and knowledgeable facilitators. Just like NFC’s in-person trainings, clients can customize trainings to their individual organization’s needs and participants can still participate in full Q&A sessions, meeting any “interactivity” requirement.

In addition, NFC is leveraging videoconference-specific tools – such as polling and breakout rooms – to keep trainings dynamic and further drive interactivity with participants.

NFC is currently calendaring trainings for the fourth quarter of 2020 and beyond. To discuss training options, please contact the NFC attorney with whom you work or call our office directly.
