California's training law requires that covered employers train employees, including supervisory employees, on sexual harassment issues every two years. Federal law provides employers with a defense to liability if they take proactive steps to prevent and correct sexual harassment and other forms of unlawful workplace harassment. A major element of this defense can be enhanced by training managers on how to prevent and correct workplace harassment.

Along with the prevention of sexual harassment and other forms of unlawful workplace harassment, California law requires that supervisory employees receive training on the prevention of abusive conduct as well as training addressing harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. In addition to complying with California requirements, Littler's program includes tools and strategies raised in the 2016 Task Force Report prepared by the  federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): bystander intervention training, civility training and information on situational awareness that helps employers identify and respond to particular areas of risk that may exist in their workplace.

Littler Learning Group's highly engaging training program combines engaging content with interactive training strategies that equip supervisory employees with the tools they need to prevent, respond to and correct workplace harassment. Supervisors will learn about their obligation to prevent and correct abusive conduct, sexual harassment and other types of unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. The course requires at least two hours for completion covering two hours of material related to prevention of sexual harassment, as well as addressing harassment based on the other categories protected by federal and state law.

Our 2020 training program includes:

  • Defining unlawful sexual harassment under state and federal law, as well as other forms of unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation
  • Tools for identifying and preventing sexual and unlawful workplace harassment
  • Practical examples of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation
  • Preventing sexual harassment based on transgender, gender identity and sexual orientation
  • Strategies for responding to inappropriate behavior, receiving and responding complaints, and understanding liability exposure for sexual harassment
  • Remedies available for sexual harassment victims
  • Resources for victims of unlawful sexual harassment, such as to whom they should report any alleged sexual harassment
  • The supervisor's obligation to report sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation
  • The limited confidentiality of the complaint process
  • What to do if the supervisor is personally accused of harassment
  • The essential elements of an anti-harassment policy and how to utilize it
  • Tools for building a respect-based workplace through civility, bystander intervention, and situational awareness
  • Immediate feedback available
