Summary: As of January 1, 2020 all employers in Illinois are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees each calendar year. Public Act 101-0221 amended the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA) requiring all Illinois employers to provide annual sexual harassment prevention training by December 31, 2020. Employers who do not provide training for all employees could face fines and other penalties.
This webinar allows employers to fulfill this requirement with ease.
This webinar will satisfy the state required training for all employees that attend. Materials covered will include:
An explanation of sexual harassment consistent with the IHRA
A summary of relevant federal and State statutory provisions
Practical remedies available to victims of sexual harassment
A summary of responsibilities of employers in the prevention, investigation, and corrective measures of sexual harassment.
Upon completion of the course, employers will receive:
A certificate of completion for each employee that completed the training for their records.
Certificates will be mailed within two weeks of webinar completion pending any attendance confirmation needed from employer.
PLEASE NOTE: This webinar does NOT meet the state requirements for employees of restaurants and bars. Additional training is required for those types of businesses.

While presenters and the Chamber staff have done our best to thoroughly address all topics, it is not possible to include discussion of every possible instance needed to keep your work environment free of any and all sexual harassment in a presentation of this nature.
It is understood this information is a tool to help workplace standards, rather than an exhaustive list of rules, statutes, regulations, and standards.
As such the Presenters, the Chamber and other affiliated parties are not liable for any action of a company's employees, customers, management, or other affiliated parties.
The Chamber of Commerce will take good faith virtual attendance but it is each employer’s responsibility to ensure their registered participant attends the entire training.
