    North Carolina Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

    While sexual harassment training in North Carolina 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 North Carolina Equal Employment Practice Act establishes public policy against discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Additionally, the North Carolina Persons with Disabilities Protection Act prohibits discrimination based on disability.

    Discrimination based on genetic information is prohibited by N.C. Gen. Stat. § 95-28.1 and N.C. Gen. Stat. § 95-28.1A. Finally, discrimination based on status as a victim of domestic violence seeking relief is prohibited by N.C. Gen. Stat. § 50B-5.5.

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