In New York State, sexual harassment training has become something that is not only required for compliance standards but something that is a first step in the compliance journey when it comes to sexual harassment. With that being said sexual harassment is not cut and dry, it is comprised of several different components and some are less than obvious.
As a first step in the compliance journey, the sexual harassment training video defines what sexual harassment is, how to prevent it, how to report it, and some of its consequences. This video adds an extra level of protection for your firm and your employees.
The training talks in depth about the two different types of sexual harassment such as hostile environment on the basis of sex and quid pro quo sexual harassment where a person in authority makes an attempt to trade job benefits for sexual favors. Each of these types of sexual harassment can impact your employees work performance and this can lead to decreased productivity and efficiency. This impacts not only your employee but their team as well by disrupting the team environment.
This training also speaks to defining who can be a target perpetrator of sexual harassment. It provides a definition of where workplace sexual harassment can occur. All of this information provides no grey area for employees to participate in workplace sexual harassment and gives a baseline for boundaries for employee relationships.
