New regulations begin October 9th!

Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Program (SWNYDLFC) is working to help farm owners, agricultural employers, and human resource managers better understand the new NYS Sexual Harassment Prevention Regulations which go into full effect on October 9th, 2019. To better serve the region’s farmers, there will be a series of lunchtime discussions offered to help farms ensure they are in compliance.

She will discuss the regulations and associated deadlines, resources available to farm employers, and understanding compliance for your business.
