Riding on the 2018 wave of workplace sexual harassment legislation, on June 19, 2019, the New York state assembly and senate voted to toughen the state’s anti-discrimination and anti-harassment law. Sponsored by Senator Alessandra Biaggi (D, WF, 34th Senate District) and driven by the Sexual Harassment Working Group, the bill enhances the package of anti-harassment laws that Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law in 2018.
