It is critical that all supervisors understand what sexual harassment is and what it is not. Supervisors must also understand what their duties are when they know about harassment. Both Connecticut and California require at least two hours of sexual harassment training for all supervisors. Moreover, California requires supervisors to receive abusive conduct (bullying) and gender identity training within six months of being hired or promoted to a supervisory position and every two years thereafter. Supervisors must also prevent retaliation against employees who complain or witness harassment or discrimination.
This program is appropriate for supervisors in every state.
During our webcast, supervisors will be provided with specific guidance on how to recognize and prevent harassing and abusive behaviors. In addition, we will outline the steps to create and maintain a respectful workplace. During the two-hour webcast, supervisors will actively participate by answering polling questions that reinforce the teaching points. They will also learn about tools they can use to recognize different levels of harassment and how to respond appropriately.
