|TargetSolutions’ Sexual Harassment Prevention for Supervisors (California AB 1825) training course features two hours of new lessons.|
Sexual harassment not only causes a hostile work environment, but the United States Department of Labor estimates it costs organizations around $1 billion in damages each year. Many of these costly incidents are the result of improper actions by individuals who are responsible for supervising other personnel.
A recent survey found that 43 percent of all claims filed by women are against supervisors and approximately 11 percent of all claims involve men filing against female supervisors.
These frightening numbers are strong reminders why it’s critical for public entities to establish harassment education programs to protect their employees, as well as their own liability.
TargetSolutions’ recently launched a new two-hour training course titled “Sexual Harassment Prevention for Supervisors (California’s AB 1825)” that features new lessons, engaging interactions, and real-life scenarios. The course is in compliance with California’s AB 1825 law, which requires mandatory sexual harassment training for supervisors who work for companies with at least 50 employees.
“I think when we look solely at the compliance piece we lose a little bit of the human factor,” says Client Services Manager Jennifer Jones. “We can help organizations provide this training and focus on educating their folks around what a safe work environment is. We take the compliance piece and humanize it, making it something that shows that an organization cares about their individuals.”
