Illinois’ sexual harassment prevention training law is one of the most stringent in the United States. SB 75 requires that all employees be trained on a yearly basis. There are also supplemental training requirements for employees in the service industry. Restaurants and bars must establish and disseminate a written policy on sexual harassment prevention training, and train on specific content such as details on reporting and filing charges with state authorities.
By July 1st, 2023, all employers in Chicago must annually provide 1 hour of sexual harassment prevention training for all employees, 2 hours for supervisors and managers, and 1 hour of bystander training for all employees. For a more detailed overview of this new requirement, visit the City of Chicago’s website.
