Discriminatory and Sexual Harassment Training

HRTrain's discriminatory and sexual harassment prevention training solutions can help your organization reduce the amount of harassment in the workplace as well as take advantage of the various affirmative defenses that are available in discrimination cases.

We all hope that our workplaces are free of harassment, but we know that is not the reality today. If and when an employee in your organization files a harassment lawsuit and the court rules in their favor, the fact that your organization provides discriminatory and sexual harassment training on a regular basis to all of the supervisors and employees in your organization will help minimize the monetary penalties imposed on your organization.

Additionally, there are other defenses that your organization could have in this or any litigation, and our online training discusses what steps need to be taken when an employee complains of harassment in the workplace. Supervisors and management who take our training will learn and know what to do when an employee or other supervisor complains of harassment. By taking the necessary steps as learned in our training, discriminatory and sexual harassment and subsequent lawsuits can be reduced.

We have many different scenarios that can be utilized in the training that cover all of the protected classes. Of course, we have scenarios that focus on sexual harassment. We also have scenarios that focus on racial harassment and discrimination, age harassment and discrimination, disability harassment and discrimination, gender identity harassment and discrimination, as well as other protected classes.

Our scenarios discuss hostile work environments, unlawful retaliation, constructive discharge, quid pro quo, abusive conduct, gender reassignment, Title IX, workplace communications, as well as many other topics pertinent to today's workplace.

HRTrain's online discriminatory and sexual harassment training solutions can also help bring your organization into compliance with state laws, such as California's sexual harassment training requirement, AB 1825 & AB 2053, and the state requirements in Connecticut and Maine.

The two different versions of our discriminatory and sexual harassment prevention training – one version for employees and another for supervisors

We have one version for supervisors and one version for the general employee population. The courses are structured in the same way. Both versions are scenario based, and the supervisors and employees are shown workplace situations where discriminatory and/or sexual harassment may be taking place. Then, through simulated interactive workplace emails and instant messages with members of Human Resources, learners are given insight and guidelines on the appropriate behaviors and actions in these situations. Both versions remind employees to follow your organization's harassment prevention policy and consult with Human Resources.

The lesson objectives and learning outcomes for the employee version of the discriminatory and sexual harassment prevention training are as follows:

The supervisor version, which is the version for any employee who manages and/or directs employees, has the same information as the employee version. However, this version will then go into more specific details about the supervisors' responsibilities if they witness harassment or if it is reported to them, including proper ways of reporting, keeping accurate forms of documentation, follow up with employees after investigations have been completed, and to follow your organization's harassment prevention policy.
