Sexual harassment on farms workshop planned

A workshop titled ‘Preventing Sexual Harassment on Farms – Tools for Employers’ will be held Monday, July 29, 2019, and Tuesday, July 30, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at multiple locations in New York state. The cost is $10 per person, payable at the door. Register and choose your location by July 26 at forms.gle/duASeZ35oqP1e28M9.

This program will bring together agricultural labor experts and farm business management specialists from across the state to discuss New York’s new laws regarding workplace sexual harassment. The training will help agricultural employers understand the new requirements and decide what steps they will take to meet the new standards before the October 2019 deadline.

This training is designed for employers and human resource managers, not employees.

Speakers located across the state will connect via Zoom to share their presentations. Each workshop location will project the Zoom meeting and provide a light lunch. Participants will be able to ask real time questions and engage with other farmers.

Meetings will take place in each of the listed Cornell Cooperative Extension county offices, except where an alternative venue and address is provided. The locations in the Central New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team region are Monday, July 29: CCE Herkimer County and CCE Schoharie County; and Tuesday, July 30: CCE Chenango County, CCE Fulton/Montgomery Counties, CCE Madison County and CCE Saratoga County.

Other locations around the state can be found at the above registration link.

The CNYDLFC Team is Cornell Cooperative Extension partnership between Cornell University and the CCE Associations in Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Otsego, Saratoga and Schoharie counties.
