Mandatory Harassment Training Laws

While there are no federal requirements for mandatory training of employees or supervisors on the issue of sexual harassment, many states have enacted or are considering some type of mandatory training.  For instance, California has one of the strictest laws requiring not only new hire training, but also recurring training.  But, don’t assume that California is the exception as Connecticut and Maine also have mandated requirements for private sector companies and states such as Hawaii, Massachussets, Maryland, Ohio, and others “strongly encourage” such training.

If your organization is not conducting this type of training, there is significant risk of increased liability and sanction should a workplace harassment situation should occur.
