A client can sue an agent for sexual harassment much more easily with recent changes to the law.
All the more reason to take note of the upcoming deadline on Jan. 1, 2021 for the mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for all employees and supervisors.
Under the law, even if a business, service, or professional “relationship” does not presently exist, a real estate agent may be liable for sexual harassment when he or she holds himself or herself out as being able to help the client professionally.
If you have 5 or more employees or even five or more salespersons or brokers even if independent contractors, then by Jan. 1, 2021, all employees must have taken the one-hour training.
