    South Carolina Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

    While sexual harassment training in South 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 South Carolina Human Affairs Law prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as the following:

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

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