To comply with federal guidelines and state laws, employers must ensure that all aspects of their harassment prevention program are fully compliant, including their:
anti-harassment and discrimination policies
periodic written notices to employees
To help you ensure that your harassment prevention policies, notices, and workplace postings are compliant and remain compliant with ever-changing laws, Clear Law offers a Full-Service Compliance Package.
Ensuring that your equal employment opportunity policies, including harassment-prevention, are current, complete, and compliant presents a key challenge for many organizations. Clear Law’s Compliance Advisory Team has reviewed hundreds of anti-harassment and other EEO policies adopted by small, mid-size, and large employers around the country. All too often, these materials have not been compliant with all applicable state laws or consistent with EEOC guidelines.
Moreover, even when a policy is compliant when adopted, it can quickly become out-of-date because discrimination and harassment laws continually change, or incomplete because states implement new policy or notice requirements every year. As such, policies that are fully compliant when adopted become non-compliant in a matter of months or even weeks in some cases.
Written Notice and Posting Requirements
Many states require employers to distribute a myriad of discrimination and harassment-related written notices. Additionally, many states require employers to display posters to inform employees of the states’ prohibition against discrimination and harassment.
Many employers are unaware of the full scope of required harassment- and discrimination-related written notice and posting requirements, which vary by state and change periodically. As a result, organizations are at risk and, unfortunately, too often learn about requirements only when faced with a lawsuit or state agency investigation.
Clear Law will work with you to develop a set of personalized policy materials specific to your organization. More specifically, we will provide the following:
This package includes consultation time with a member of Clear Law’s Compliance Advisory Team to ensure we have the information necessary to develop the appropriate set of policies and that you have an opportunity to review the proposed policy materials and request changes.
This package also includes a one-year subscription for necessary updates. When policy or, written notice, or poster requirements change, or a state issues modified notices or posters, we will let you know and send you updated proposed policy materials and an updated Reference Guide containing the new information.
