Training Sessions for Harassment: State Mandated

Workers have the right to work at an environment free from any hostility and harassment which may affect their work.

Under employment laws in each state, workers can file complaints against their co-workers and employers who are discriminating against them and harassing them by making the work environment hostile and hinder one’s productivity.

To lessen the growing number of harassment complaints, there have been state-mandated training sessions against sexual harassment. These seminars cater to supervisors who are working for companies with at least 50 employees.

These training sessions aim to enlighten supervisors of the dos and don’ts in handling employees and acts that can constitute harassment.

It is important for employers to encourage their personnel to undergo these trainings so that they can assure other employees that sexual harassment or discrimination is not permitted in the workplace.
