Connecticut law now requires sexual harassment training for all employees
On June 18, 2019, Connecticut enacted a new state law expanding its sexual harassment training requirements. Employers must now provide two hours of sexual harassment training to all employees, not just supervisors. New employees hired after October 1, 2019, must be trained within six months of hire. All current employees must be trained by October 1, 2020.

Which employers must provide training?
All employers of any size must provide sexual harassment training to their supervisors in Connecticut. Employers that have three or more employees must provide training to all employees in Connecticut. (The previous Connecticut law only applied to employers who had 50 or more employees and only required training for supervisors.)
What is the deadline for providing the training to existing employees?
Employers must provide sexual harassment training to all employees in Connecticut by October 1, 2020. If an employee has received such training since October 1, 2018, he or she is not required to receive the training again.
What are the requirements for training new employees?
New employees hired after October 1, 2019, must receive sexual harassment training within six months of hire. Thus, an employee hired on October 1, 2019, would need to receive training by April 1, 2020.
