Benefits of workplace prevention Harassment Seminar Training in Connecticut:
Regardless of whether your organization is mandated by state law to offer sexual harassment prevention training, all businesses should incorporate sexual harassment prevention training into their company culture and HR best practices. This is the best way to keep your employees happy, productive, & everyone out of court.
Sexual Harassment training seminars will position your employees to learn what constitutes specific violations of your company's standards and policies and the EEOC laws, ( See below ), that govern sexual harassment. Our interactive training seminars will assure you that all of your employees know and understand the standards concerning violations of sexual harassment in the workplace. All employees will take a Pre-Test and Post-Test to determine exactly what they learned. All questions are discussed in a round table format. This test can also become a permanent part of the employee's personnel file. This will assure HR that the attending employees both comprehend the Connecticut state laws , EEOC statues, and your company's sexual harassment policy.
About Harassment in Connecticut:
Connecticut law requires employers with three or more employees provide training and information to employees regarding sexual harassment prevention.
Companies with fewer than three employees are not required to train all workers, but must provide training for supervisors.
The Time’s Up Act, effective Oct. 1, 2019, requires employers with at least three employees provide information to their employees in three ways:
Post in a prominent and accessible location information concerning the illegality of sexual harassment and the remedies available to victims.
Provide, not later than three months after the employee’s start date, a copy of such information via email or by posting the information on the company’s website.
Provide two hours of training and education concerning the federal and state statutory provisions concerning sexual harassment and the remedies available to victims of sexual harassment.
An employer who has provided this training after Oct. 1, 2018 is not required to provide the training a second time, though periodic supplemental training is required for all employees at least every ten years.
Employees hired on or after Oct. 1, 2019 must receive training within six months of their hire date.
For new employees who received training with a previous employer, the employee’s training certificate is transferable to the new employer only if the training (1) was provided by the CHRO (whether on-line or in-person); and (2) occurred within two years of the new hire date.
The Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities enforces this law and provides materials to help employers comply with state sexual harassment training requirements
