Alaska Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

    While sexual harassment training in Alaska 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 Alaska Human Rights Law prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age, ancestry, color, disability, marital status, national origin (including ancestry), parenthood, race, religion, and sex (including pregnancy).

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