Thousands of people face unwelcome comments and requests for sexual favors from landlords, property managers, maintenance workers, and security guards. With HUD and the Department of Justice’s focus on the issue of sexual harassment within the multifamily industry, we have revised our Sexual Harassment courses.
Grace Hill’s updated sexual harassment courses are the first in the property management industry to also meet state requirements around training for California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine and New York, and local requirements for New York City.
The sexual harassment course covers legal harassment and elements of the law employees must understand. These topics have been streamlined to make room for more meaningful, practical guidance on how to create a civil and respectful workplace and strategies for addressing harassment if employees experience it or see it happening to someone else.
New, critical topics include:
- EEOC recommendations focusing on a civil and respectful workplace
- Anti-bullying guidance
- Sex-based harassment (gender identity, gender expression, transgender, sexual orientation)
- Bystander intervention
Make sure your employees are aware of the laws, but more importantly make sure they are trained in what is appropriate, respectful behavior. The Sexual Harassment course leverages guidance from the EEOC and key states on effective ways to prevent and address sexual harassment in the workplace.
