    Sexual harassment prevention training has become a high priority for HR practitioners and their companies. Amplified by the #MeToo movement, there is a growing demand to replace the traditional model of workplace harassment prevention training, which focused on educating employees on laws and rules, with a fresh approach that emphasizes what matters most – ensuring employees know how to make the right decisions and take the right actions if they experience or witness sexual harassment or other misconduct. As never before, workplace harassment prevention training is essential for educating employers and employees on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior. An effective sexual harassment training program should send a clear message that it’s every individual’s responsibility to speak up and report incidents of harassment and retaliation.

    Training employees on how to recognize and respond to situations that can lead to sexual harassment – from the obvious to the subtle – is one of the most effective ways to foster a positive, respectful company culture, facilitate healthy conflict resolution, and reduce the risk of unlawful sexual harassment. A comprehensive sexual harassment training course equips employees with the knowledge and tools they need to identify potential issues and intervene appropriately, ultimately contributing to a workplace environment that values respect, diversity, and inclusivity.

    Moreover, effective training goes beyond covering anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws. It plays a crucial role in enabling employees to grasp the full spectrum of harassment, encompassing workplace harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. By providing training that helps workers recognize sexual harassment in all its forms, an employer equips their teams with the critical awareness needed to thrive in an office environment. Furthermore, it can help clarify the boundaries of workplace harassment, ensuring employees are less inclined to file complaints for behavior that does not genuinely qualify as harassment. Thus, Workplace Harassment Prevention Training can help employers avoid costly employee harassment complaints and legal risks associated with workplace harassment that can damage an organization’s reputation, recruiting and retention, and bottom line.

    Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

    Traliant’s Preventing Workplace Harassment training helps learners recognize and prevent incidents of harassment. Consistent with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines and court decisions, Traliant’s training covers not just sexual harassment, but all forms of workplace harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. Additionally, training meets all state and local training requirements, such as California SB 396, which mandates the inclusion of topics related to gender identity and expression and California AB 2053 and SB 1343, which requires topics such as workplace civility, bullying and bystander intervention.

    Course Versions

    Multi-state employers can now comply with state and local harassment training laws in all 50 states, including regulations for CA, CT, DE, IL, ME, NY, NYC, WA, and Chicago, with just three course versions:

    • Advanced: This 2-hour sexual harassment training course should be used by California supervisors, supervisors in the City of Chicago (and supervisors outside of Chicago that supervise employees in Chicago), and all Connecticut employees, supervisors, and non-supervisors, the first time they train.
    • Extended: This 1-hour sexual harassment training course should be used by non-supervisory employees in California and the City of Chicago.
    • Fundamentals: This 45-minute sexual harassment training course should be used by both supervisors and non-supervisors in all other states.

    Additionally, there’s an Essentials version, a shortened 20-minute course designed for high-turnover businesses.

    These courses are available in industry-specific versions providing relevant scenarios that enhance employee engagement and deepen the learning experience:

    Traliant also offers country-specific versions aligning with regional laws and regulations, as well as a global version covering relevant equal opportunity laws for 38 countries:

    A policy review and acknowledgment can be added to the course. As part of their sexual harassment training, users can be required to certify that they have read and understood your sexual harassment prevention policy. This is supported with the inclusion of a “Policy Review” exercise where users are required to search your sexual harassment prevention policies to find the answers to questions relating to your policies.

    Protected Characteristics

    Learning Design

    Traliant’s sexual harassment courses captivate employees through interactive games and story-based learning to create a dynamic, engaging learning experience. Leveraging the timeless power of storytelling, Traliant taps into the proven human preference for learning through narratives. Employees are presented with nuanced scenarios, many inspired by real cases, prompting them to deeply engage and thoughtfully assess each situation. Traliant’s sexual harassment training avoids lecturing employees with a simplistic list of “do’s” and “don’ts,” and delves into the intricacies of “gray area” situations that employees might encounter in real life. Through this, employees better comprehend the potential repercussions of their actions.

    With a “No-Fail” assessment strategy, Traliant’s sexual harassment training for employees ensures everyone masters the course content and eliminates the possibility of failure. To successfully complete the workplace harassment training, employees must complete the Quiz Show. Each cell in the Quiz Show represents a major principle taught in the course. If the learner misses the first question in a cell, the course provides the learner feedback and then provides another question on the same topic. The learner cannot complete the course before correctly answering a question in each cell.

    Compliance Expertise

    Required Legal Expertise for Training

    State laws and court decisions from around the country require employers to ensure their training is developed and delivered by legal experts. For example, California’s mandatory sexual harassment training laws (SB 1343, SB 396, and AB 1825) specifically require that training providers must have “expertise in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.” Moreover, workplace training providers must also have expertise in the prevention of “harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.” The trainer provider must be an attorney, professor, instructor, human resource professional or harassment prevention consultant with at least two years of expertise in employment law or harassment prevention.

    Traliant’s in-house legal expertise ensures our training courses are legally accurate and up-to-date with changes in the law. Traliant’s Chief Strategy Officer, Michael Johnson, is one of the leading experts in harassment law in the country. A former U.S. Department of Justice attorney and a graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Johnson brought one of the DOJ’s first class-action style sexual harassment lawsuits. He has provided training and consulting to organizations such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Google, the United Nations, and the World Bank. Michael leads our Compliance Advisory Team, whose members have decades of experience practicing employment law for large law firms and Fortune 500 companies.
