Sexual Harassment Training Illinois

Employers must provide annual sexual harassment training starting Jan. 1, 2020

Illinois Sexual Harassment Training

Illinois joins a growing number of states that have passed stronger anti-harassment legislation in the wake of #MeToo. Effective January 1, 2020, the Workplace Transparency Act (SB 75) requires that all employees receive interactive sexual harassment training every year. Restaurants and bars doing business in Illinois have additional training requirements.

Training Requirements
The sexual harassment training provisions in the Workplace Transparency Act apply to all Illinois employers.

  • Employers must  train all employees, including short-term and part-time employees and interns by December 31, 2020, and then on an annual basis.
  • New employees must receive sexual harassment training within 90 days of hire.
  • Bars and restaurants have specific training requirements related to their industry.

Training Topics
Training should be interactive and at a minimum include:

  • An explanation of sexual harassment consistent with Illinois law.
  • Examples of conduct that constitutes unlawful sexual harassment.
  • A summary of relevant federal and state laws concerning sexual harassment, including remedies available to victims of sexual harassment.
  • A summary of employers’ responsibilities to prevent and investigate sexual harassment and take corrective measures.
