Illinois Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

This course was developed to meet the requirements of Section 1130.400 of the Illinois Administrative Code, which requires all professional engineers and structural engineers to complete a 1 hour course in sexual harassment training. It is applicable for license renewals occurring on or after January 1, 2020. Licensees may count this 1 hour PDH course towards the required 30 PDH hours.

In this course the student will understand what sexual harassment is, who it applies too, governing laws, and the methods for employers to address, correct , and prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

The Illinois Human Rights Act makes it a civil rights violation “[f]or any employer, employee, agent of any employer, employment agency or labor organization to engage in sexual harassment.” 775 ILCS 5/2-102(D).

The Illinois General Assembly finds that tolerance of sexual harassment has a detrimental influence in workplaces by creating a hostile environment for employees, reducing productivity, and increasing legal liability. Therefore, every employer in the State of Illinois is required to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training that complies with section 2-109 of the Illinois Human Rights Act.

Once you complete your course review, take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit.
