In this presentation, Amy Rhinehardt, an attorney from Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC, will discuss the differences between the new laws and the old, such as changes to timeframes for rent demands and notices for late rent, changes in notice requirements, mandatory adjournments, penalties for unlawful evictions and much more.

Preventing and Addressing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
On August 12, 2019, Governor signed legislation that will have a profound impact on the litigation of sexual harassment claims filed with the Division of Human Rights and in court. As a result of this legislation, it is more important than ever for employers in New York to focus their efforts on preventing and effectively addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. This presentation by Suba Viswanathan, an attorney from Bond, Schoeneck & King, will cover the legal requirements and best practices for promulgating sexual harassment policies, training of employees, investigating internal complaints, and taking corrective action against employees who engage in sexual harassment.
