Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Seminar (New Haven)

April 16, 2015
Wiggin and Dana's New Haven Office, One Century Tower, 265 Church Street

The Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities requires that employers with fifty or more employees provide two hours of training and education on the prevention of sexual harassment to all supervisory employees within six months of their assumption of a supervisory position. The Commission also encourages supervisory employees to be re-trained every three years in light of ongoing developments in this ever-changing area of the law.

Many of you have already provided training to supervisors on this subject, but need a cost-effective way to train supervisors who missed the initial training, employees who recently became supervisors, and supervisors whose last training session took place more than three years ago and could benefit from a refresher course.

To assist employers in meeting their training obligations, and to raise employee awareness about other forms of unlawful discrimination and harassment, we will present comprehensive and engaging seminars in our New Haven and Stamford offices. These seminars will address the operative federal and state statutory provisions, the definition of sexual harassment, conduct that may constitute sexual harassment, available solutions, and practical strategies to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Please click here to access the registration form along with directions to each office.

Due to building security in New Haven and Stamford, please make sure that you have a photo ID with you. Your ID is needed to prepare a visitor's badge which will allow you access to the Wiggin and Dana offices.

We will continue to provide these seminars in various office locations twice a year, generally in April/May and October/November. On-site training at your place of business is also available upon request.
