Under the Time’s Up Act, nearly all Connecticut employers are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training for all employees, including supervisors and non-supervisors. The original deadline for complying with the training requirement was October 1, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with Executive Order 7DDD, the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (“CHRO”) allowed employers to request a one-time 90-day extension of the deadline, provided the extension was received by September 9, 2020.

Following Governor Lamont’s recent extension of the declaration of public emergency, and based on the related Executive Order 9A, the CHRO has announced that the October 1, 2020 deadline has been extended to January 1, 2021. This is a blanket extension and does not require a request.
