Businesses are being advised that an information sheet on sexual harassment must be distributed to all employees by July 1.
Last summer, Gov. John Carney signed HB 360 into law, which requires the distribution of the sheet. New employees are required to receive the information sheet on day one of employment.
Organizations with 50 or more employees are required to offer training on ways todeal with sexual harassment.
Trade associations, including the Delaware Restaurant Association, have been reminding their members about complying with the law.

The bill is part of a wave of social justice legislation that has come out of Dover in the past couple of years. Opponents questioned further regulation and paperwork over practices that are already illegal.
Backers of the bill have pointed to the prevalence of sexual harassment in the workplace and fears of workers who believe they risk being fired for reporting incidents.
