Sexual Harassment- NY Mandatory Training

Green Clock Hours: 2.00

New York law prohibits sexual harassment. Although it may sound like a simple concept, sexual harassment can be difficult for individuals to truly comprehend, including what is considered “sexual harassment” and what they should do about it. Current laws set out specific requirements that someone must prove if they plan to show that they were harassed. Understanding those requirements can help companies and individuals avoid the behavior that might constitute sexual harassment. This course will identify those requirements.

 

Understanding the behavior that might constitute sexual harassment is not enough. Employees must be able to recognize sexual harassment to not only avoid it, but also to know how to prevent it, and when to report it if it should occur. A supervisor needs to know what actions to take when harassment is observed, or allegations are made. Court decisions continue to hold supervisors to a high behavior standard, not only in terms of their own behavior, but also in terms of how to respond to sexual harassment by employees, customers, or vendors. It is important that all staff understand that “abusive conduct” is also unlawful.

In the workplace, you are busy. You have tasks to accomplish and people to please. You may not be excited to sit through this interactive training on sexual harassment, especially with the pressures of your job on your mind. It is perfectly understandable. The concepts of this training, however, are part of your responsibilities. In fact, New York law requires all employees at all levels of the organization to take sexual harassment training. If you are in a position as a supervisor and do not understand your responsibilities, you are putting your employer, and potentially yourself, at risk. Understanding the law on sexual harassment will help you eradicate it in the workplace, as well as protect yourself and your employer.

This course will not only teach the basics of sexual harassment law but, through case scenarios and exercises, it will also provide a clear understanding of how to effectively respond to sexual harassment.
