Games

Clear Law’s course engages users through interactive learning games. In this “Family Feud” type game, the learner tries to enter all the characteristics protected by harassment law. Click on the image to watch a sample.

Story-Based Learning

PowerPoint or parables—which is more effective? For thousands of years, humans have learned best through stories. Clear Law’s course presents dozens of nuanced scenarios—many of which are based on actual cases. After each scenario, the learner is asked a question and then receives feedback. Click on the image to watch a sample.

No Preaching

Instead of lecturing employees with a simplistic list of “do’s” and “don’ts”, the course focuses on exploring the nuances of “gray area” situations that employees may face in real life. In this example, learners see how a decision to report or not report harassing behavior can impact others. Click on the image to watch a sample.

“No-Fail” Assessment

Our assessment ensures that every employee masters the course content—without allowing anyone to fail.  To complete the course, the employee must complete the Harassment Pyramid.  Each pyramid cell represents a major principle taught in the course.  If the learner misses the first question in a cell, the course provides the learner feedback and then provides another question on the same topic.  The user cannot complete the course before correctly answering a question in each cell.

What Is Not Harassment

The course teaches employees not only what is harassment but also what harassment is not. In this way, employees are less likely to file harassment complaints for conduct that is not in fact harassment.

New Topics

The course addresses new topics relating to workplace harassment. For example, the course addresses how the misuse of social media and mobile devices can contribute to a hostile work environment.

Legal Expertise

Required Legal Expertise

State laws and court decisions from around the country require employers to ensure that their training is developed and delivered by legal experts. For example, California’s mandatory sexual harassment training law (AB 1825) specifically requires that trainers must have “expertise in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.” The trainer must be an attorney, professor, instructor, human resource professional or harassment prevention consultant with at least two years of expertise in employment law or harassment prevention.

Clear Law’s in-house legal expertise ensures that the course is legally accurate and up-to-date with changes in the law. Clear Law’s CEO, Michael Johnson, is one of the leading experts in harassment law in the country. A former U.S. Department of Justice attorney and graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Johnson brought one of DOJ’s first class-action style sexual harassment lawsuits. The United Nations has retained him to consult on its harassment policy. He has developed online and in-person harassment courses used by more than 1.5 million people.
