PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Compli, a provider of HR and Compliance solutions, announced today the immediate availability of a Sexual Harassment Prevention Quick Start Program designed specifically for New York employers. This out-of-the-box program enables companies to quickly implement a comprehensive and EEOC-compliant anti-harassment program.

Workplace harassment can be a legal nightmare for any business, with an average of 76 harassment charges filed daily with the EEOC. For mid-sized companies, an estimated 19 percent of employment disputes result in defense and settlement costs, averaging $125,000 per claim. In 2012 alone, the total cost of harassment settlements and awards surpassed $356 million.

In 2017 the #MeToo movement cast a spotlight on sexual harassment in the workplace. In an effort to address the scourge of workplace harassment, New York State recently enacted laws requiring employers to have a comprehensive anti-harassment program which includes both training components and formal complaint processes.

"New York is not alone in requiring that employers fight workplace harassment. Maine, Connecticut, and California already require sexual harassment training, and other states are soon to follow," said Rob Warmack, CEO of Compli. "We wanted to ensure New York businesses were prepared to meet this challenge by giving them an easy to implement solution designed to fit their state-specific requirements."

Compli's Sexual Harassment Prevention Quick Start Program provides proven policies and training developed by experts, complaint response procedures based on industry best practices, live guidance from Compli's team of HR professionals, and a technology platform that assigns and tracks required activities. The program can be rolled out to current employees and new hires during their first week of employment. Employees access the program on an ongoing basis to re-read policies, refresh their training, review complaint procedures, or file a complaint online

"We maintain defensible documentation for our clients, helping them create a good faith legal defense, in case one is needed, and help their HR staff efficiently maintain a safe and positive workplace," added Warmack.
