New Connecticut Sexual Harassment Training Regs


UPDATE: Connecticut State Sexual Harassment Training Law is now in effect.


On June 18, 2019, Connecticut enacted a new state law expanding its sexual harassment training requirements.

(The “old” CT law required manufacturers to provide sexual harassment training for all supervisors within 6 months of their hiring or promotion to a supervisor position.)


Effective October 1, 2019, all manufacturers with more than 3 employees must provide sexual harassment training for all employees.

  • Current employees must be trained by October 1, 2020, while employees or supervisors hired after October 1, 2019 must be trained within 6 months of hiring (or placement in a supervisory position). Training must be “updated” every 10 years.
  • The training must be at least two hours in length for both non-supervisory and supervisory employees.

New CT Harassment Posting Requirements:

Effective October 1, 2019, manufacturers with more than 3 employees must prominently post a notice of its sexual harassment policy and provide a copy of the notice to all employees within 3 months of being hired.

The notice must be posted on the employer’s intranet site (if the employer maintains one)

Or, if sent by email, the email must state in the subject line: “Sexual Harassment Policy.”


A new provision prohibits a manufacturer, when responding to an allegation of harassment, from changing the claimant’s “conditions of employment” without his or her written consent.


Also, the legislature expanded the period for a claimant to file a charge of discrimination or retaliation with the state agency from 180 days to 300 days.


Manufacturers should consider updating their policies and training programs in advance of these laws’ effective dates.
