Sexual harassment reduces worker productivity, increases worker absences, and causes depression throughout the workplace. As such, eliminating sexual harassment is necessary to optimize every business. However, sexual harassment trainings can backfire, leading to disastrous results, if they aren't planned in accordance with prevailing public health research.

This on-demand interactive video training is unique in its combination of the best practices from the fields of public health and the law. The training was fully developed and taught by a discrimination attorney who has a Masters in Public Health. It is in full compliance with the federal Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping, as required by governmental contractors, and it fully satisfies the NYS / NYC annual training requirements (NYS Labor Law §201-g and NYC Local Law 96). This research-based course works, plain and simple, because it treats everyone as allies of victims while equipping them with the tools to stop sexual harassment everywhere.
