    Oregon Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

    According to the Oregon BOLI Civil Rights Division, employers should provide sexual harassment prevention training. See Oregon BOLI Sexual Harassment Resources for Employers (employers “should emphasize the importance of its sexual harassment policy through communication and training. Training for staff is essential. …”).

    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.

    Oregon law prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age (18+), color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin (including ancestry), race, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation, and related conditions), sexual orientation, and status of performing duty as servicemember of military or uniformed services. See Or. Rev. Stat. Ch 659A.

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