The State of California now mandates that employers with 5 or more employees provide Sexual Harassment Prevention Training to all of their employees, at a minimum of once every 24 months. The staff version of the training for those employees who are NOT supervisors must be a minimum of one hour in duration.
Sexual harassment prevention training is needed because of the negative impact that sexual harassment can have on both employer and employee in the workplace. In addition to the time and expense of a potential complaint, discrimination and harassment can impact the workplace in a negative manner by causing lower employee morale, increased absenteeism, lower productivity, decreased commitment to the employer, and decreased motivation. Sexual harassment prevention training may also provide an affirmative defense for employers if a complaint is filed against them.
HR Classroom's web-based training allows companies to ensure they have delivered this important compliance information to all employees, no matter where they are located - and document each employee's training. The goal of this course is to teach the trainee what they can do to help their employer create and maintain a work environment free of sexual harassment. Your organization’s own policy can also be inserted directly into each training.
