House Bill 360

October 19, 2018

As you have probably heard, on August 29, 2018, Delaware Governor John Carney signed House Bill 360 (“Law”) into law, adding Delaware to the list of states that have enacted laws expanding workplace protections against sexual harassment. This law takes effect on January 1, 2019.

Key points of this law include:

  • The expanded definition of what constitutes sexual harassment

  • Employers with 50 or more employees in Delaware provide interactive anti-sexual harassment training to employees and supervisors in the calendar year 2019 and every two (2) years after

  • Employers with four or more employees in Delaware are required to distribute this state-issued Information Sheets to employees explaining their rights and remedies within six (6) months of the Law’s effective date, i.e., by July 1, 2019
