Maine Workplace Harassment Training for Employees


This course is made to conform with Maine state regulations and is tailored for employees. We also offer workplace harassment training for Maine supervisors. For courses that comply with the state-specific laws of Connecticut, California, Delaware, or Illinois, or for the general workplace harassment course, go here. 

This one-hour course is designed to meet or exceed the minimum standards for federal and State of Maine's harassment and sexual harassment training requirements and helps create a welcoming work culture through an informed workforce prepared to prevent, address, or resolve harassment in the workplace. Federal and the State of Maine's legislature have recognized the profound need for employers to take an active role in preventing and appropriately addressing concerns over workplace harassment, sexual harassment, and bullying.

Training includes the following:
  1. The illegality of sexual harassment;
  2. The definition of sexual harassment under state and federal laws and federal regulations, including the Maine Human Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 United States Code, Title VII, Sections 2000e to 2000e-17;
  3. A description of sexual harassment, utilizing examples;
  4. The internal complaint process available to the employee;
  5. The legal recourse and complaint process available through the Maine Commission on Human Rights; directions on how to contact the commission; and
  6. The protection against retaliation as provided under Title 5, section 4553, subsection 10, paragraph D.

The Maine Workplace Harassment Training for Employees course is a one-hour interactive online course designed to comply with federal workplace harassment training requirements and state sexual harassment training in the State of Maine.

Specifically, under Title 26, § 807 of the Maine Revised Statutes, workplaces with 15 or more employees must have a sexual harassment training program in place for all employees. These employers must complete an education and training program for all new employees within one year of hire.

According to the Maine statutes, employers must conduct additional training for supervisory and managerial employees within one year of commencement of supervisory responsibilities that includes, at a minimum, the specific responsibilities of supervisory and managerial employees and methods that these employees must take to ensure immediate and appropriate corrective action in addressing sexual harassment complaints.  

The statutes further clarify that these training programs, when implemented by the "State[ of Maine], a county or a municipality for its public safety personnel, including, but not limited to, law enforcement personnel, corrections personnel, and firefighters, may be used to meet training and education requirements mandated by any other law, rule or other official requirement."  

This course should be part of a comprehensive training strategy incorporating a brief training on your company's policy on workplace harassment as well as the Maine Workplace Harassment Training for Supervisors course and Bystander Intervention Training.

Upon course completion, employees will be able to:

  • Define harassment and sexual harassment;
