Mandatory Harassment Training: What Employers Need to Know

Event Date: 10/03/2018

Avoiding harassment claims continues to be one of the most significant issues facing employers. While many savvy employers are proactive in training their employees to act in a way that minimizes the risk of having a harassment complaint filed, a growing number of states (and some cities) have begun to pass laws mandating training. California, Maine and Connecticut have led the way with Delaware and New York (and New York City) ready to join the ranks of the states/cities imposing their own various training requirements on employers. More are sure to follow.

While the requirements are similar in nature, there are significant differences with each state (CA, ME, CT, NY, DE) – such as:

• definitions of qualified training personnel
• number of employees in order to require training
• training documentation and retention
• training methodology and interaction
• mandatory course content, and
• which level of employees MUST participate.

Please join us on October 3, 2018 for a webinar to discuss this growing trend and to ensure that your practices and policies are compliant.
