Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Customized Sexual Harassment Courses Tailored to Fit Your Organization's Needs
Our onsite Sexual Harassment Training Classes include seminars designed for employees and seminars designed for supervisors. (The supervisor's course is designed to meet the requirements of California AB 1825, CA AB 2053, CT, ME and other state sexual harassment legal requirements.) These courses can be delivered in an onsite, online, or in a "blended" learning format depending on what works best for your organization and employee locations. All of our harassment courses are customized to your policies and the various state and Federal laws covering your employees.
Every employer has the responsibility to provide a workplace free of sexual harassment and other forms of discriminatory harassment.
Harassment in the workplace is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and is covered by state laws as well. Our harassment training is designed to help you create a harassment free workplace and, at the same time, help you build a defensible position against harassment claims.

Federal and state court decisions and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidelines make it clear that every employer must have policies and procedures in place to prevent workplace harassment. But having a policy does not mean employees understand it or know what to do if they are being harassed or discriminated against in any manor. Again, court decisions and EEOC guidance make it clear employers must provide training to ensure every manager and employee understands the organization's harassment policy. Through employee training, employers show due diligence relative to controlling workplace harassment. (See the article: EEOC Harassment Statistics.)
Every employee should be trained on what harassment is and what to do about harassment if they see it happening to them or anyone else.
The Supervisor's Guide to Preventing Workplace Harassment and the It's About Respect: Preventing Harassment in the Workplace courses, outlined below, will get your organization to track, prevent and control harassment of all types.
