Sexual Harassment Training by State and Municipality
Author: XpertHR Editorial Team
The following chart covers private employer requirements by state and municipality for sexual harassment training and related record retention or notice communications. Please refer to Training and Development > State Requirements and EEO Harassment > State Requirements for information on states and localities with only notice or posting requirements addressing sexual harassment, but no training requirements, or that have industry-specific harassment prevention requirements.
For comprehensive coverage of posting requirements, please refer to State Workplace Labor and Employment Law Posters.
The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) encourages, but does not require, employers to conduct sexual harassment prevention training. Jurisdictions marked N/A may encourage - but don't require - employers to conduct sexual harassment prevention training. In addition, industry-specific harassment prevention requirements may apply and/or certain employers may have compliance requirements as a result of a public contract, a collective bargaining agreement or a settlement agreement/consent decree. However, employers in all locations should consider providing sexual harassment training in order to minimize liability risks due to a supervisor's inappropriate actions or because of a supervisor's failure to adequately address a harassment incident.
