There is no excuse for not knowing about changes to sexual harassment laws!
Recently, Delaware House Bill 360 was put into practice and requires that employers who have 50 or more employees provide sexual harassment training to all employees every other year.
Know and share the laws with your employees!
• Confirm you have distributed the “Delaware Sexual Harassment Notice” to all employees.
• Post the notice in an area where all employees of Delaware can see it in the workplace.
• Provide training within 1 year of hire for new employees that is interactive and done by educators who are familiar with the sexual harassment laws.
• Provide supervisors with more intensive training that coaches them on how to handle concerns reported to them from their employees.
• This training must be interactive and done by educators who are familiar with the sexual harassment laws.
You do not want to find yourself in a courtroom due to a sexual harassment lawsuit and watch your expensive attorneys try to justify why your company did not comply with the law. Not complying means no matter what you’ve done right, you're going to be wrong and that is most likely going to cost you.
Though not required by the state, it is suggested that employers create a sexual harassment policy for your business and provide it to your employees.
