Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for LICENSED and UNLICENSED Employees
The State of Illinois created a Sexual Harassment Prevention Training course for non-licensed workers in the state. Every employer in the State of Illinois is required to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training that complies with section 2-109 of the Illinois Human Rights Act (“IHRA”). All employees regardless of their status (i.e. short-term, part-time, or intern) must be trained. If an employer has an independent contractor working on-site with the employer’s staff, the independent contractor should receive sexual harassment prevention training.
