Sexual Harassment Training for Management and Supervisors



“Sexual harassment” will be defined, the law will be explained and managers will learn how to address suspected sexual harassment in the workplace. The course will also provide instruction regarding how to investigate sexual harassment complaints and remedy sexual harassment when it does occur in the workplace. Anyone who supervises other employees in the workplace is welcome and encouraged to attend.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the meaning of “sexual harassment”

  • Identify conduct that constitutes “sexual harassment”

  • Prevent sexual harassment in the work place

  • Investigate and remedy sexual harassment in the workplace



NOTE: It is recommended that all supervisory and management level employees attend sexual harassment training. Connecticut law requires that all employers with 50 or more employees provide sexual harassment training to all employees who supervise at least one (1) other employee. This course is intended to meet those requirements.
