Connecticut employers who have yet to comply with the state's sexual harassment prevention training mandate have been given more time.
The state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities has again delayed the deadline for employers to complete the training, pushing it back to Apr. 19, 2021.
The previous deadline was Feb. 9, which was also changed from an earlier Jan. 1 deadline.
The training mandate, enacted by lawmakers in 2019, requires every business with three or more employees to provide harassment-prevention training to all employees.
New employees must receive the training within six months of being hired. Employers of any size must provide the training to supervisors.
Before the 2019 law, Connecticut businesses with 50 or more employees were required to provide supervisors with two hours of training.
CBIA’s sexual harassment prevention training fulfills the law’s training requirements and can protect businesses.
CBIA’s scheduled March 31 workshop includes expanded sexual harassment prevention training for supervisory and non-supervisory employees.
The workshop focuses on acceptable workplace conduct, and effective prevention and intervention strategies.
It will trigger positive changes in workplace culture and give employers better protection from costly lawsuits.
