The Coppola Firm is pleased to announce the first of its kind in Upstate New York: online sexual harassment prevention training by licensed attorneys.

Recognizing that businesses of all sizes, particularly small businesses, struggle to implement NYS-required sexual harassment prevention training in an engaging and interesting way, The Coppola Firm introduces a practical and affordable online training program to protect businesses from liability for sexual harassment claims.

“We’re seeing more and more sexual harassment claims in the workplace,” said managing partner Lisa Coppola, who’s a small business owner herself, “It’s an expense of doing business that grows year after year, so we set a goal to mitigate the expense by making the training easy and affordable for businesses to implement.”

National data shows that one in four women and one in 10 men have been victims of workplace sexual harassment, and New York legislation now requires all employers to provide sexual harassment prevention training each and every year. The deadline for the first year is October 9th, and it’s quickly approaching.

The Coppola Firm regularly provides in-person training, and its online training is fully compliant and easy to implement through a secure portal. Employers simply invite their employees to the online training and then monitor their progress through completion. Employees benefit from the flexibility to use any device at any time. The webinar ensures their attention with frequent mini-quizzes and embedded codes.

“New York law makes it easy for employees to file a complaint. The Coppola Firm makes it easy to build the employer’s defense,” said Erin Ewell, a firm attorney who contributed to the project. The program’s pricing starts at $29.99 per employee with volume discounts and is found at sexual-harassment-prevention.com.
