    While sexual harassment training in Georgia 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 Georgia Age Discrimination Act prohibits workplace discrimination based on age (40-70). Additionally, the Georgia Equal Employment for Persons With Disabilities Code prohibits discrimination based on disability.

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