Does your company recognize the importance of Sexual Harassment Training?
January 11, 2018
Sexual harassment in the workplace is becoming more recognized. Attorneys suggest that employers take a look at their sexual harassment policies, complaint and investigation procedures, and training programs.
Sexual harassment training helps employees recognize what sexual harassment is, why it is important to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, the company’s policy and procedure on sexual harassment and the employee’s responsibilities in regards to sexual harassment.
Currently, California and Connecticut require businesses with 50 or more employees to provide sexual harassment training to supervisors. In Maine, businesses with 15 or more employees must provide training to all workers at the start of their employment. In other states, such as Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, employers are encouraged—but not required—to provide training. More state and local governments are expected to adopt mandatory training programs that will require in-person, annual training for all employees.
