Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

New York State Law requires that employers of one or more employees must conduct sexual harassment prevention training for all employees each year. New York City Law also has training requirements for employers. To learn about NYC requirements, please see the Frequently Asked Questions.

The Commission has developed an online training that will satisfy both the New York State and New York City sexual harassment prevention training requirements.

At the bottom of this page, you will find links to the online training in multiple languages.


  • In NYC, employers must keep a record of employees’ training and must retain records for three years.
  • At the end of this training, you will get a certificate of completion. 
    • If you are taking this training on a desktop computer or laptop, you will be able to print or save the certificate to your computer. At the end of the training, you must click the “SAVE” button first in order to generate your certificate of completion.
    • If you are on a mobile device, you can use the device’s capabilities to take a screenshot, save, or email the certificate.
  • Your employer should tell you before you take the training how they want to receive the certificate.
  • Please note: When you are taking the training, you cannot save your progress. Do not refresh the page, as you may lose your place and have to restart the training.
