MANHATTAN BEACH, CA, August 29, 2018 – Traliant, an innovator in online compliance training for the modern workforce, today announced the availability of a new bystander intervention training course. The 25-minute, interactive course provides employees with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively intervene and take action when they witness workplace harassment, discrimination and other misconduct.
What began on college campuses as a tactic to prevent sexual assault, bystander intervention training has emerged in the #MeToo era as one of the most effective ways to stop inappropriate workplace behavior before it rises to the level of illegal harassment and discrimination. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission believes bystander intervention training can be a game changer that can have a positive impact on workplace culture, and encourage a sense of collective responsibility among employees to prevent harassment.
Enables organizations to meet training requirements of the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act
MANHATTAN BEACH, CA, August 20, 2018 – Traliant, an innovator in online compliance training for the modern workforce, today announced the availability of a New York City edition of its industry-leading Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training. The NYC version covers all the training requirements mandated under the Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act, a package of bills to address and prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the legislation in May.
The legislation requires NYC employers with 15 or more workers to conduct sexual harassment training for all employees − including interns, supervisors and managers− within their first 90 days of employment, and then annually.
As the #MeToo movement continues to reverberate across industries, the message is clear that sexual harassment training should be priority for all employees, not just managers and supervisors. Recently, New York City and New York State strengthened their anti-harassment laws to mandate training for all employees, supervisors and managers. Other states and municipalities are expected to follow.
Training is one of the pillars of a holistic approach to preventing harassment and other inappropriate conduct. If everyone is responsible for contributing to a respectful, safe workplace, then it follows that all employees should participate in training that provides the knowledge and skills they need to understand the interrelationship between preventing harassment, discrimination, retaliation, bias and other workplace conduct and creating a positive, inclusive work environment.
