Some state laws require employers to ensure that their harassment prevention training is developed and delivered by persons with certain expertise. In this way, employers can be confident that their course is legally accurate when created and kept up to date with any changes in the law.
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 its online 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 a graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Johnson brought one of DOJ’s first class-action style sexual harassment lawsuits. He has consulted with the United Nations on its harassment policy. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), the federal agency responsible for enforcing harassment and discrimination laws, has turned to Clear Law to train some of its own investigators how to investigate harassment and discrimination complaints.
Because of Clear Law’s in-house legal expertise, you can be assured that your course is legally accurate when first delivered and kept up to date with any changes in the law.
