What is a Preventing Workplace Harassment training course?

A Preventing Workplace Sexual Harassment training course for employees helps identify the different forms of harassment, what is considered legal and illegal by state, and how to be an upstander when misconduct is happening in the workplace.

Meet All State and Federal Training Mandates

Our course meets all training requirements related to sexual harassment and bullying, including those in California (AB1825, AB2053, SB396, and SB1343), New York State (NYHRL/§201-G), New York City (Local Law 96), Illinois (IHRA/WTA/§§2-109, 2.110), Delaware (DEA/HC 360), Connecticut (§46A) and Maine (§807). Emtrain’s 120-minute course helps employers meet requirements in Connecticut and, for those still training supervisors biennially, in California. The 70-minute program may be used by employers still training non-supervisory employees in California every other year. We recommend that all employers train their employees annually, to reinforce your policies, and encourage good behavior–this is why we have multiple course length offerings. Our content was reviewed and edited by top subject matter authorities, including domain experts who testified before the California legislature and helped draft the most recent California training requirements legislation.

Take Advantage of the Workplace Color Spectrum

The Workplace Color Spectrum® is a shared language tool to help you and your workforce describe a range of behaviors in non-offensive, non-adversarial terms. Our clients incorporate the Workplace Color Spectrum® into their workplace and employee experience, from orientation and onboarding to performance management to transitioning out of an organization.

We hear stories from our clients regarding the utility of the Workplace Color Spectrum®. It might be an employee stopping a CEO from telling an offensive joke, or a callout when a picture shared in a slack thread is a bit off-color. Regardless, HR teams can leverage the Workplace Color Spectrum® whenever employee conduct does not reflect organizational values.

Note from the CEO

We’re in the middle of a paradigm shift because we have evolving social norms that affect the workplace and we lack a shared understanding of what’s respectful and what’s not. These changing social norms trigger conflict as people struggle to find common ground and universally held values. In short, one person’s view of disrespect and/or harassment is different than another’s and co-workers and teams are not on the same page when it comes to which actions are acceptable or unacceptable.

Solely focusing on the legal definition does not help; the law’s method for providing an objective, universal standard is to send a situation to a jury of 12 people to decide. That’s clearly not a practical method to navigate and solve issues in the moment. To fill the gap, Emtrain provides the Workplace Color Spectrum® so people can color code conduct, not people, and provide instantaneous feedback on conduct and achieve common ground for acceptable versus unacceptable conduct.

Disrespect, bias and harassment are predictable if you know what to look and listen for. Just like a physical health condition has indicators of an emerging problem, there are Workplace Social Indicators™ that provide stakeholders visibility to growing risk of disrespect, bias and/or harassment within teams in the organization. There are six Workplace Social Indicators™ for Respect and Emtrain weaves them throughout the lessons in this program, as well as integrating related diagnostic questions, so that not only is Emtrain helping you meet a training regulation and educate your employees, we are also providing you a heat map, benchmark report and remedial plan to improve the respect within your workplace culture.
