Ohio Sexual Harassment Training Requirements
According to the Ohio Administrative Code, employers should provide sexual harassment training. See Ohio Adm. Code 4112-5-05(J)(7). (“employer should take all steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring, such as affirmatively raising the subject, expressing strong disapproval, developing appropriate sanctions, informing employees of their right to raise and how to raise the issue of harassment under [state law] and developing methods to sensitize all concerned”).
Additionally, 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 Ohio Civil Rights Act prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age (40+), ancestry, color, disability, national origin, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related conditions), and status of being servicemember Ohio militia or National Guard, or US Armed Services.
Local ordinances may provide broader protections, so you should check the local Civil Rights Commission regulations applicable to your workplace.
