New York, NY, March 29, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- California has recently made changes to AB 1825, which sets guidelines for Sexual Harassment Training and Education. When banks, credit unions and money services businesses asked if Edcomm’s Banker’s Academy was changing its courses so that they meet the new requirements, the answer was simple - Edcomm’s course was already compliant.
The changes to the law include modifications to the definitions of effective interactive training, subject matter experts, trainers or educators and training. According to the new mandate, Edcomm is not only meeting the requirements, but is surpassing training expectations.
Edcomm's interactive eLearning program, Focus on California Sexual Harassment, provides all the training supervisors need to meet the requirements of the law and to create and maintain a fair and respectful workplace that is free from sexual discrimination and harassment. The program comes with robust tracking and reporting so that compliance can be easily demonstrated, and it offers a wizard-like capability to help identify who must take the training. Additionally, the course provides immediate access to an expert for any questions or concerns students have.
Focus on California Sexual Harassment meets the two-hour minimum training time requirement and was created by experts in the field with considerably more than the required three years of experience, both important components of the revised law.
The program further meets the law's requirements by covering such topics as sexually harassing behaviors, hostile work environment, tangible employment actions, quid pro quo, third party sexual harassment, workplace romances, effects of sexual harassment, workplace violence, supervisor responsibilities, what to do if you're harassed, accused or witness harassment, retaliation and investigations.
