Training Requirements and Resources
All employees should feel safe to learn, work and excel at their organization. Unfortunately, sexual harassment can prevent your employees from having that sense of security. Sexual harassment can come in a variety of forms, which often makes it difficult to respond to and address. As an employer, you have a responsibility to ensure your employees are safe from these types of threats. Proper training can help clarify what constitutes as sexual harassment, reporting procedures and how to handle harassment if it occurs.
Many states have adopted their own requirements when it comes to sexual harassment prevention training.
