Help create a welcoming work culture through an informed workforce prepared to prevent, address, or resolve harassment in the workplace. Federal and state legislatures 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. 

This interactive course replete with periodic knowledge checks to verify engagement has been designed to keep supervisors actively engaged in the material for long-term retention of substantive and procedural knowledge and skills necessary to prevent and address harassment in the workplace.

The Maine Workplace Harassment Training for Supervisors course is an approximately one-hour interactive online course designed to comply with federal workplace harassment training requirements and that of most states.

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.

Training must include 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.

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 used as part of a comprehensive training strategy incorporating a brief training on your company's policy on workplace harassment, Workplace Harassment Training for Employees course, and Bystander Intervention Training.
