What Is This Training?
As of January 1, 2020, all Illinois employers are required to conduct annual sexual harassment prevention training. At a minimum, this must include:
- an explanation and examples of what constitutes unlawful sexual harassment
- a summary of relevant federal and state provisions and remedies available to victims
- a summary of employers’ responsibilities in preventing, investigating and taking corrective measures in regard to sexual harassment
The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce (LPCC) is excited to partner with Greensfelder to provide LPCC members with multiple virtual options to conduct annual sexual harassment prevention training. Each session not only meets, but exceeds, Illinois’ annual training requirements. Failure to provide training each year is a violation of the Illinois Human Rights Act. Illinois employers who do not provide compliant training will be subject to civil penalties, including a $500 penalty to any business with fewer than 4 employees, or $1,000 to those with 4 or more employees. Penalties for subsequent violations can rise to $5,000 each.
Why Choose This Training?
Greensfelder’s comprehensive training courses offer separate and distinct sessions for employees and supervisors, with each covering the prevention of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and bullying in the workplace under Illinois and federal laws. Additionally, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling that all employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees based on the employee’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity, these trainings cover this important change as well.
Registration & Training Options
Listed below are the specially priced training options for LPCC members. Please note, that the trainings can be used for multiple employees and/or supervisors; pricing is not per employee/supervisor.
