Who protects the employer from sexual-harassment claims?
The new requirement for sexual-harassment training for all employees is intended to inform everyone of the new parameters and boundaries, including bullying and sexual orientation. The list of behaviors that now constitute harassment is a long one, greatly expanded in the #MeToo era.
An important question to ask before a company determines who will provide the training, is what is the goal? The majority of trainings that I have witnessed place all the emphasis on what can’t be done. Or what? If workers are told that a simple touch on the arm, intended to make a connection, may constitute harassment, we have entered a dangerous world where virtually anything can be construed to be harassment. The seeds of potential harassment that occurred months or even years before are planted for behavior that may have been innocent and innocuous and truly does not qualify as harassment.
Employers are more vulnerable than ever when something as simple as a brief hug between friends can be considered harassment because it makes someone else feel uncomfortable. It’s an unfair standard that leaves the employer defenseless when the training emphasizes that virtually any physical contact could be harassment in the eyes of an observer. Yet many pieces of training do exactly that; a laundry list of “ don’t do this or it may be considered sexual harassment.”
Who protects the employer?
Our training is different, because we emphasize that not everything is harassment. We demonstrate that a handshake, or a compliment, or a brief hug between friends should not be considered harassment. We explain that intent should be considered, And we explain that every person has the power to inform someone if they are made to feel uncomfortable. We answer lots of questions in our trainings, helping attendees understand and clarify what could be -and what is not- harassment. We use case studies so that attendees can come to a consensus on what constitutes harassment, and what actions to take if they have a question.

Thank you... Brenda did a great job of keeping the employees engaged throughout the entire training, and mixing demonstrations and stories to explain all the concepts. Both the Spanish and English trainings were wonderful. I thought this was much more effective than the video trainings or in-house trainings we have done in the past.
Richard's training was once again fantastic! He really does an excellent job of keeping the group engaged throughout the training. I'm always amazed at how many compliments I get on the training after. In fact, our CEO joined the first training on Tuesday 9/15 just to compliment Richard on his presentation and how much he got out of it last year. Thank you again!
Your training was the best we have ever had - on any topic! It's because the trainer kept people engaged and interested, and they learned much more than usual.
Thank You Richard for your amazing job! You make us laugh, learn and be proactive! Thank you again.
I have received many compliments about the sexual harassment training. The trainers were very entertaining and the employees appreciated that they provided the training in both English and Spanish. Your live training was a lot more enjoyable than virtual training.
