Harassment Prevention Training

For employers who want the most effective harassment prevention training for their workers, our firm’s experienced and qualified training team can provide live and interactive programs that are tailored to your organization, for every level of employees.

Under the Illinois Workplace Transparency Act that took effect January 1, 2020, all employers – whether or not based in Illinois – that have employees working in Illinois*, must provide annual sexual harassment prevention training. The first deadline to comply with the requirement is December 31, 2020, and no extension has been granted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What We Do

Our training team offers live, interactive sessions for employees that incorporates your company’s anti-harassment policy. And if you don’t have a policy or it’s outdated, we can help with that, too.

We understand that simply reading slides to employees isn’t very effective. In addition to large group discussion, featuring interesting and engaging hypothetical examples, we can offer small group sessions that often help employees raise questions or report potential issues they might not otherwise.

Only experienced human resources and employment lawyers conduct our training. They are able to answer employee questions live, and their presence can boost an employer’s credibility with its employees regarding its handling of harassment issues.

Topics covered include those required by Illinois law, such as what defines sexual harassment in the workplace and sometimes beyond, what methods and policies can be used to prevent it, as well as how reporting must be done by both employees and employers. In addition, our training can cover problematic workplace situations beyond sexual harassment, along with strategies that can help companies reduce their risk and liability.

All-Digital Option

During the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our training sessions can be conducted remotely using our firm’s videoconferencing software. Our software allows for both large group sessions and individual or small group breakout sessions occurring simultaneously.

Next Steps

Our training includes flexible pricing options, depending on an employer’s specific needs. For more information or to schedule a training session by our lawyers, please contact one of the team members below.
