Harassment Prevention: A Commonsense Approach for Illinois Employees
Contribute to a more respectful, effective, and efficient culture by understanding, exercising, and protecting an individual’s right to a sexual-harassment-free workplace in the state of Illinois.
Harassment, especially sexual harassment, along with related issues of discrimination and retaliation, bullying, and uncivil behavior that can occur in the workplace can cause harm, create stress, and distract everyone from doing their jobs efficiently and well. This interactive, scenario-based course discusses the laws that prohibit harassment in the workplace and protect our rights as individuals. It also covers topics related to fairness, civility, and respect. In addition to knowing your own rights, it is your responsibility to follow your employer’s policies and do your part in keeping your workplace free from unlawful conduct like discrimination and harassment.
