- A description and examples of sexual harassment.
- The complaint process within the organization and to the state Human Rights Commission.

A copy of the policy must be distributed to employees annually. Delivery of the notice must be made in a manner that ensures receipt by all employees, such as attaching the notice to employees’ paychecks.
