Illinois Sexual Harassment FAQ

Preparing for Illinois’ new sexual harassment training requirement

If you are an Illinois-based company, you have some major state-legislated changes coming your way. Following in the footsteps of California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine and New York, the Land of Lincoln has implemented sexual harassment prevention training requirements for all employers in the state. This new law kicks in on January 1, 2020. If you are short on time and would appreciate a quick synopsis of what to expect and how to successfully implement this new employee training requirement, I’d like to point you to a white paper prepared by a noted compliance training and research expert at Williamson Research.

It’s titled “Illinois Training Compliance Update: A guideline for implementation of Illinois’ new sexual harassment prevention training requirement.” It’s free, and you don’t have to sign up for anything or provide any contact information.
