Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that key components of new legislation greatly expanding the scope of New York's workplace anti-discrimination and sexual harassment protections go into effect today. The new provisions eliminate restriction that harassment be "severe or pervasive" in order for it to be legally actionable and prohibits confidentiality requirements in employment discrimination cases. These measures are central components of the Governor's 2019 Women's Justice Agenda.
