Starting next year, employers in the city will be subject to a series of new laws designed to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

It's part of the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act, passed by the city council and signed by Mayor de Blasio earlier this week.

Under the new rules, workplaces with 15 employees will have mandatory anti-harassment training every year.

Workplaces will also be required to display a poster that details employee rights and responsibilities regarding harassment.

The new law also extends the statute of limitations from one year to three years for individuals who want to file harassment reports with the City Commission.

Manhattan City Council Member Hellen Rosenthal is chair of the Council's Committee on Women.

As one of the key supporters of the law, Rosenthal joined us to discuss what this means.
