AB1825 Preventing Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation
California and Connecticut law now requires organizations with at least 50 employees to provide two hours of sexual-harassment training to supervisors at least every two years. The training must provide information and practical guidance on the federal and state laws prohibiting sexual harassment and the remedies available to victims of such harassment in the workplace. In addition, the training must include practical examples aimed at instructing supervisors in the prevention of harassment, discrimination and retaliation.
WeComply has teamed with the Proskauer Rose law firm to develop this online training course specifically designed to meet these requirements. This course covers all the essential topics (listed below) through a combination of text, video vignettes, interactive exercises, "expert commentary" from experienced employment lawyers, links to news items and other ancillary resources, and a final quiz/game to assess employees' understanding of the material.
The course addresses the following topics:
Reasons for Concern
- Exposure to EEOC claims and lawsuits
- Intangible damages
- Key federal and state laws
- Company liability for supervisor harassment and harassment by others
- Company and supervisory liability under state law
- Quid pro quo harassment
- Hostile environment harassment
- Conduct to be avoided
Other Prohibited Harassment
- Protected characteristics
- Conduct to be avoided
- Set the right tone
- Treat others with respect and dignity
- Know the Company's policy
- Respond properly to complaints
- Assist with the investigation
- Don't retaliate
Like all WeComply training offerings, the course is fully customizable — textual and quiz content, illustrations, policy and other links, etc. — using WeComply's web-based WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing tools. Use WeComply's state-of-the-art system to administer your training initiative — to send automatic assignment and reminder e-mails, run user-tracking reports of all kinds, and manage employee data — or export the course to run on any AICC/SCORM-compliant learning management system.
The course is available for use 24 x 7 x 365 from any computer with a Web browser and an Internet connection. The Flash plug-in (version 7 or later) is required to view the video vignettes and expert commentary.
Introducing Speed-Bump™ Technology
Speed-Bumps ensure that users will not click through the course too quickly, without focusing sufficiently on the training content. When the course senses a "quick-click" through important content, a series of "speed bumps" is automatically added in the form of additional content that slows the user down and rounds out the learning experience.
