What’s in the Sexual Harassment Training Course?
Our Sexual Harassment training course is built to EEOC and other federal regulations. This class discusses several topics such as different types of harassment (including verbal, visual, physical and quid pro quo), recourse, retaliation, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.
Why do I need sexual harassment training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for sexual harassment training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
The Canadian Human Rights Act and the Canada Labour Code address sexual harassment. They also establish criteria for determining when unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment, define the circumstances under which an employer may be held liable, and suggest affirmative steps employers should take to prevent sexual harassment.
Because of these requirements, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with sexual harassment. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
