Preventing Sexual Harassment: Chicago
The Chicago sexual harassment prevention training was created to meet the city’s requirements for training supervisors and employees on unlawful harassment. The interactive training and exercises are designed to help employees recognize, respond to, and prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.
The courses meet the requirements of Chicago’s Human Rights Ordinance § 6-1-040 by providing 2 hours of training for supervisors, 1 hour of training for employees, and 1 hour of bystander intervention training required under the ordinance for all employees. Importantly, the bystander intervention training offers strategies for intervention so employees know how to intervene when harassment occurs.
Using effective, engaging training courses can help employers reinforce their policies against harassment and address inappropriate behavior in the workplace before it rises to the level of unlawful harassment.
