Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Deadline Extended for Connecticut Employers

The Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO) recently announced that the deadline for employers to provide its employees with sexual harassment training has been extended from October 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021. This extension applies to all employers and requires no action on the part of Connecticut employers.

The training requirement is mandated by Connecticut’s “Time’s Up Act” (Public Act No. 19-16 together with Public Act No. 19-93), which requires employers with 3 or more employees to provide sexual harassment training to its employees. Employers with less than 3 employees must provide training to its supervisors. Prior to the new law, Connecticut only mandated sexual harassment training for employers with 50 or more employees. The new law also imposes stringent notice requirements on all employers.

Notably, the CHRO provides an online training program that is available to employers at no cost. More comprehensive information regarding the requirements of the Time’s Up Act can be found by clicking this link.
