This chart covers private employer requirements by state for sexual harassment training and related record retention or notice communications. However, employers in all states should consider providing sexual harassment training in order to minimize liability risks due to a supervisor's inappropriate comments or because of a supervisor's failure to adequately address a harassment incident.
In addition to the federal requirements of laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, virtually all states have equal employment opportunity laws that prohibit discrimination based on membership in specific protected classes. Additionally, many municipalities have enacted ordinances prohibiting discrimination based on protected class status. This Quick Reference chart details such requirements.
