Try EasyLlama’s Sexual Harassment Training For Illinois To Comply With The State’s Mandatory Requirements & Avoid Fines

On August 9, 2019, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed Senate Bill 75, the Workplace Transparency Act, which amends the Illinois Human Rights Act. The Act requires that all employers in Illinois provide sexual harassment training to all employees, each year, starting in 2020. These efforts were designed to create a sexual-harassment free workplace.

Our training courses on Preventing Discrimination and Harassment are designed by HR experts and meet Illinois State’s latest regulations based on the list provided by the Illinois Department of Human Rights and the Public Act 101-0221 (titled the Workplace Transparency Act)/ S.B. 75/ Section 2-109 of the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA).

What Employers Should Know About Illinois Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Illinois is at the forefront of addressing sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. As of January 1, 2020, the IHRA requires Illinois employers to provide sexual harassment prevention training by December 31, 2020 and annually thereafter; and for restaurants and bars to establish and disseminate a written policy on sexual harassment within the first week of an individual’s hire and to provide supplemental, industry-specific sexual harassment prevention training. EasyLlama is here to help you comply with those latest changes.

Illinois protected categories
  • How frequently must employees be trained?

    By December 31, 2020, employers must provide all employees with sexual harassment prevention training. Thereafter, the training is required annually. Fulfilling the annual training requirements is based on the calendar year. The IDHR encourages employers to also train employees that received training at a prior employer. Employers are required to keep records that show that all employees received sexual harassment training.

  • Who needs to take the training?

    All employees must be trained, including short-term employees, part-time employees, and interns. The IDHR strongly recommends that independent contractors also receive training, especially if they work on-site or interact with the employer’s staff. Furthermore, employees based outside of Illinois who regularly interact with employees in Illinois also should be trained.

  • When must employees get trained?

    The IDHR encourages employers to train new employees as soon as possible after hire. Employers are liable for the harassing conduct of new employees starting when they are hired. Training must be provided by December 31, 2020 and then annually by December 31.
