Sexual Harassment Training Courses
In today’s work world, Federal laws strictly prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace as well as all forms of discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, national origin, disability, pregnancy, and genetic information. Some state and local laws are more extensive than Federal laws, and pose even stricter parameters. These laws at every level are mandatory, making adherence essential. The U.S. Supreme Court, in fact, has established legal standards for sexual harassment in the workplace that employers must meet to avoid or, at a minimum, limit occurrences of discrimination and sexual harassment and thereby avert liability for punitive damages. Non-adherence can lead to lawsuits for both the organization and individual employees involved.
The Cintas online sexual harassment training courses help train employees on how to prevent discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. Such training is a smart investment for most every type of organization. That’s because not only can discrimination and improper conduct in the workplace have legal ramifications, it can also cause loss of reputation, impact employee productivity and be costly to an organization’s bottom line in both time and financial resources. Making sexual harassment training available to your employees and managers can be your best defense against all of these potential risks.
All courses include quizzes, news briefs and a final quiz highlighting real-world sexual harassment compliance issues that employees should learn to recognize and deal with appropriately. Courses are available in multiple versions: Audio, Video, Audio-only, and Text-only.
