    While sexual harassment training in Arizona is not specifically required by state statute, EEOC guidelines and court decisions from around the country have made clear that employers should provide workplace harassment training to all employees periodically. The training should cover sexual harassment and all other forms of unlawful harassment related to federal and state-protected characteristics.

    The Arizona Civil Rights Act prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age (40+), color, disability, genetic information, national origin, race, religion or creed, or sex (including pregnancy and related conditions). For more information on Arizona equal employment opportunity requirements, see Arizona Attorney General – Employment Discrimination.

    Local ordinances provide broader protections, so you should check the local Civil Rights Commission regulations applicable to your workplace.
