Q&A with the HR Lady

Am I required to provide sexual harassment training to my employees and/or managers?

 As a Florida employer, you are not required to provide harassment training of any type. Note that some states do require this training. It is highly suggested that you have a solid anti-harassment and discrimination policy that all employees read, understand and have signed. It is also suggested you consider conducting training for employees and managers to understand what harassing behavior is and is not, how it affects workplace culture, productivity and ultimately revenue. The chances of your business ending up in as a statistic is higher in Florida than anywhere else. Our state is number two (behind Texas and ahead of California) in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claims filed by employees.
