Sexual Harassment Training in Maine:
In 1991, Maine became the first state in the U.S. to require sexual harassment training. Maine sexual harassment training requirements are some of the most rigorous in the U.S., requiring all employers with 15 or more employees to provide training to supervisors and employees.
When planning Maine harassment training for employees and supervisors, adherence to the requirements laid out in the Maine statute is the only way to guarantee compliance.
Under existing Maine employment law, harassment based on sex is a violation of the Maine Human Rights Act. Requests for sexual favors, unwelcome implicit or explicit verbal or physical advances or retribution on the basis of someone rejecting such advances is considered sexual harassment.
There are several Maine employment law obligations that employers should be aware of, including the responsibility of employees to report harassment as well as illegality of sexual harassment. Employers in Maine are expected to exercise reasonable care to prevent and quickly correct unwanted sexual harassment.
One important aspect of harassment laws in Maine is that an employer may be deemed responsible for the actions of employees as well as supervisors if the employer, its agents or supervisory employees knew about or should have known about the unwanted behavior.
