This interactive workshop is intended for supervisors and managers. It will provide participants the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about sexual harassment prevention.
It will also fulfill the manager/supervisor training requirements outlined in the updated NYS Sexual Harassment Regulations that went into effect October, 2018.
Sexual harassment is a pervasive issue within workplaces around the country. Recent national conversations have highlighted the reality that all workplaces are susceptible to sexual harassment and have a responsibility to educate staff about the issue including what constitutes sexual harassment, the impact on targets as well as the workplace as a whole, employee rights, and how to report.
Representatives from the Worker’s Center will be on hand to answer questions and provide community resources and information to participants.
