SEXUAL HARASSMENT PREVENTION TRAINING WEBINAR (Covers Bar and Restaurant Training Requirements) – Live Webinar
Even with COVID-19, Illinois and the Illinois Department of Human Rights still require ALL Illinois employers to provide all employees sexual harassment training that meets the state law requirements.
The Elgin Area Chamber has teamed up with Mike Wong, a partner at the law firm SmithAmundsen, LLC, to provide a way for its members to do this training in a cost effective manner. The EAC will have two live webinar trainings, one for management and another for non-management employees. Register today for the live trainings or look for the on-demand access webinar after December 9 to have your employees access the training at a date more convenient for you. This makes it ideal for employers to be able to provide training to all employees. This means that you can register even after the live webinars, as you will still have access to the on-demand webinar trainings that meet the state law requirements for sexual harassment training.
While employers are not required to have different training for members of management, it is recommended as supervisors and managers are considered the eyes and ears of a company and can hold a company strictly liable through their action - or worse, inaction. The training for members of management will go into more detail on responsibilities and potential liabilities, and will address specific situations and actions management should take to avoid claims of discrimination and harassment.
The training sessions are approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour and are in compliance with the Illinois Human Rights Act requirements for the annual sexual harassment training, including the supplemental requirement for Bars and Restaurants.
For Chamber members the cost of training will be $10 per employee. For Chamber friends, cost is $15 per person. Participants will receive a certificate via email.
The live webinars are scheduled for the following date/time:
December 8 at 11:00 a.m. – Management Sexual Harassment Training
December 9 at 8:30 a.m. – Employee Sexual Harassment Training
Even if you or your employees are not able to attend the live webinars, in signing up for this training you will be provided access to the recorded webinars that can be viewed on-demand at the best time that works for you and your employees in order to satisfy the Illinois Human Rights Act sexual harassment training requirements.
