The Amherst Chamber of Commerce is offering a course to help businesses meet the new state mandates for training to prevent sexual harassment.

Beginning this year, New York is requiring all businesses to provide anti-sexual harassment training for their employees each year. New workers must receive this training within their first month on the job.

The chamber is offering a two-hour course, led by a panel of experts, that complies with the state mandate. The course runs from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Feb. 28 at the SUNY Erie North Campus in Amherst. Afterward, participants receive certification that they've met the state requirement.

Employers can visit amherst.org to register themselves and their workers.
