The State of Georgia does not tolerate sexual harassment or retaliation in any form and recognizes that appropriate training for all employees, including part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees, along with the creation of safe, respectful workplaces, are critical to prevention. All employees must complete sexual harassment prevention training on an annual basis. New employees must complete the training within thirty (30) calendar days of hire.
The online training course is designed to provide employees with information to prevent sexual harassment and properly report complaints of sexual harassment or retaliation. In addition to completing the online training, employees must acknowledge receiving the Statewide Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy.
The supporting materials available on this page are designed to support agencies in managing and distributing Sexual Harassment Prevention training to State employees.
