Sexual Harassment Prevention Training – New Illinois State Requirement for 2020.
The 1-hour sexual harassment prevention education mandate applies to ANY profession licensed by the state that requires continuing education as a condition of re-licensure.
What documentation is an employer required?
Employers are required to keep a record of all trainings. Such records must be made available for IDHR inspection upon request. This record may be a certificate or a signed employee acknowledgement or course sign-in worksheet. The records may be paper or electronic.
How often should employers train employees?
Employers must provide their employees training by December 31, 2020 and annually thereafter. For individual employees, fulfilling the annual training requirement is based on the calendar year.
How soon must new employees be trained?
Employers should provide training to new staff as soon as possible after hire or by December 31, 2020 and then annually thereafter by December 31. Employers are encouraged to train employees as soon as possible because employers are liable for the sexual harassment conduct of new employees upon their hire.
