In the wake of #MeToo, a growing number of U.S. states are enacting their own harassment and discrimination prevention laws. California and New York are notable examples; both states have implemented reforms requiring mandatory employee and supervisor training with specific content and/or timing requirements.

Other states, including Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, and Maine, have approved new legislation, but are still in the process of finalizing what training requirements will look like.
Most financial institutions, depending on the number of employees, are required to abide by these new laws which typically also include mandatory harassment and discrimination training.
