Harassment Prevention Training for New York

The American Staffing Association, in partnership with the New York Staffing Association, now offers a basic harassment prevention training program for staffing companies operating in New York.


Compliance Tailored to New York

Staffing companies have a legal obligation to comply with all applicable employment laws. Just like other types of employees, temporary employees are protected by employment laws—including those pertaining to harassment.

“The Respectful Workplace,” the ASA–NYSA harassment prevention training program, is a staffing-specific, interactive course designed to meet the needs of New York staffing companies. This course content was developed by Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP (NYSA’s corporate counsel), in conjunction with the ASA legal department.

ATTENTION: New York Temporary & Contract Employees

Note that this page does not provide you access to this course. You must contact your staffing firm for a customized link in order to complete this training.

Training must have been completed by Oct. 9, every year. (This may be based on the calendar year, anniversary of each employee’s start date, or any other date the employer chooses) (New York State); by 12/31/19 and then every calendar year (NYC).

About the Course

Features of this program, which takes about 35 minutes for employees to complete, include

  • Unlimited access to the online course from Jan. 1–Dec. 31 of the current year’s paid subscription
  • A course page customized for your staffing company that includes mandated information:
    • Your company’s antiharassment policy
    • Who to contact with questions
    • Who to contact to file a complaint

  • Course can be completed on mobile devices as well as laptop and desktop
  • Suggested email to invite employees to take the course
  • Automated notification to both employer and employee when the worker completes the entire course
