Course Details

Sexual harassment incidents trouble the work environment by establishing a negative setting that can ruin working relationships, lower productivity, result in costly administrative actions and even more expensive litigation. You need protect your employees from sexual harassment and educate them on the explicit policy, encouraging them to report violations freely.

Adherence to the sexual harassment company policy is essential. A ‘zero tolerance’ policy is the best option. This will help you avoid liability and disciplinary action by fulfilling your management responsibilities. It will also help reduce the number of sexual harassment incidents. Employers are liable for unlawful harassment by supervisors. Supervisory authority is determined by a person’s job function rather than job title. An individual is qualified as a supervisor if the individual has authority to undertake or recommend tangible employment actions affecting the employee, or direct the employee's daily work activities.

California companies with 50 or more employees are required to provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisors within six months of hire or promotion, and every two years thereafter. The goal of this course is to train supervisors and managers to recognize, prevent, and correct sexual harassment, respond to complaints, identify retaliation, and promote a discrimination-free workplace. The course is updated with the new training requirements of AB 2053, prevention of abusive conduct.
