Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment training has become a high priority for HR practitioners and their organizations. Recent headlines and hashtags underscore the need to replace the old model, which trained employees on laws and rules, with a fresh approach that emphasizes what matters most – ensuring employees know how to make the right decisions and take the right actions if they experience or witness sexual harassment or other misconduct.
As never before, anti-harassment training is essential for educating employees on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior, and reinforcing the message that it is every individual’s responsibility to speak up and report incidents of harassment and retaliation.
Training employees on how to recognize and respond to situations that can lead to sexual harassment – from the obvious to the subtle – is one of the most effective ways to foster a positive, respectful workplace. Training can also help organizations avoid costly harassment complaints that can damage their reputation, recruiting, retention and bottom line.
Sexual Harassment Training Course
The Preventing Discrimination and Harassment course is available in four versions:
- Employee (35 min)
- Manager (60 min)
- California (120 min) – covering AB 1825, AB 2053, SB 396, SB 400
- Connecticut (120 min) – covering the CHRO Act
- New York (40 min) – covering New York City & New York State
The course is comprised of bite-sized episodes presented in a Netflix-style news format. Episodes feature interactive videos that challenge employees to decide on the best approach to difficult, realistic work situations.
The scenario in the Sexual Harassment episode dramatizes a typical encounter between a manager and a junior associate. When the manager’s comments turn personal, employees experience how quickly situations can shift into unacceptable territory.
The Sexual Harassment episode also illustrates the different types of behavior that can constitute sexual harassment, such as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Employees learn about sexual harassment outside the workplace, consensual relationships and how to identify a “hostile work environment” and “quid pro quo,” as defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
