Kentucky Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

    While sexual harassment training in Kentucky 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 Kentucky Civil Rights Act prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as the following:

    age (40+), color, disability, national origin, race, religion (including all aspects of religious observance and practice), and sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation, and related conditions),

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