Sex Harassment Prevention Seminars
Monday, April 15, 2019
As part of its President’s Initiative program, NYSIR has been conducting statewide seminars for member districts and BOCES on how to be in compliance with last year’s New York State Sexual Harassment Legislation.
This legislation has two major requirements, the first of which is for districts and BOCES to adopt individual sexual harassment policies compliant with the law. To help with that, NYSIR Risk Management distributed a model policy and complaint form for subscribers to adopt. The second major requirement is for employee training. NYSIR’s seminars were implemented to help prepare member personnel for the required training.
Topics at the seminars include a review of the legislation, a model policy and training program and how to conduct effective investigations. Attendees may include senior district administrators, building administrators, human resource and personnel managers, and other personnel.
Several seminars have already been conducted, but three are still available for attendance. Here are the dates and locations:
April 18 Omni Theater, Lower Level, 333 Earle Ovington Blvd., Garden City, NY 11553
April 30 Hilton Garden Inn, 6004 Fair Lakes Road, East Syracuse, NY 13057
May 1 Rainbow Banquet Hall, 47 Woods Falls Road, Altona, NY 12910
