The State of Georgia does not tolerate sexual harassment or retaliation in any form. Appropriate training for full-time, part-time, temporary and seasonal employees, along with the creation of safe, respectful workplaces, are critical to its prevention. All employees must complete sexual harassment prevention training at least once a year. New employees must complete the training within 30 calendar days of being hired.
The online training course will provide employees with information to prevent sexual harassment and properly report complaints. All employees must complete the course and acknowledge receiving the Statewide Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy.
These materials are designed to help agencies manage and distribute sexual harassment prevention training to state employees.
Agencies with a Learning Management System (LMS)
Two versions of Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) files (SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2000).
Two additional SCORM versions, including accessibility commands for users with a disability.
Agencies without a Learning Management System (LMS)
Six YouTube links representing an individual module in the training course.
One YouTube link representing all six modules combined.
An attestation template to certify completion of training. Collect the completed attestations from each employee.
Two student guides, one with large print to assist employees with disabilities.
A certificate template for employees who completed the training.
Agencies with employees who lack access to a computer must provide the means for them to complete the training. Here are some options and recommendations.
Determine which employees have access to a smart mobile device:
- Provide YouTube links containing Sexual Harassment Prevention for Employees to complete the training course videos on the smart mobile device. These links are available from the agencies without an LMS section.
- Provide the attestation document to employees to complete on paper and request that they mail it to their HR department. The attestation document is available from the agencies without an LMS section.
Determine which employees do not have access to a smart mobile device:
- Provide the Sexual Harassment Prevention for Employees Student Guide. There are two versions of the Student Guide; one has large print to assist employees with disabilities. These guides are available from the agencies without an LMS section.
- Request that employees complete and return five attestations (one per module). These special attestations include content review statements for each module in the Sexual Harassment Prevention for Employees training course.
