You will also learn about the three “I’s”
Bystander intervention training is one of the most effective ways to teach employees within your organization to not only address, but prevent harassment in the workplace. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recommends that all employees take Bystander Intervention training nationwide.
Several jurisdictions have requirements for bystander intervention training and recently, the Chicago City Council passed an amendment to the city’s sexual harassment laws. The amendment states that in addition to sexual harassment prevention training, “all employees must participate in one hour of bystander training annually.” Our 1-hour training course meets the new requirements and will ensure your organization is legally compliant. We also offer a 20-minute version for all employees outside of Chicago.

When providing online compliance training, many employers violate the Americans with Disabilties Act because their training is not fully accessible to users with disabilities. The EEOC has sued several employers in recent years, in part for not providing accessible training. This year, the U.S. Department of Justice issued “Web Accessibility Guidance Under the Americans with Disabilities Act” and noted its renewed focus on suing companies for violationg this guidance.
Clear Law Institute complies with not only Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act but also the much stricter requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard.
