Go Beyond "Check-the-Box" Training
Clear Law develops new workplace harassment prevention training each year so that your employees never have to take the same course twice.
Clear Law’s online sexual harassment and workplace harassment training engages users through interactive learning games. In this “Family Feud” type game, the learner tries to enter all the characteristics protected by federal harassment law.
PowerPoint or parables—which is more effective? For thousands of years, humans have learned best through stories. Clear Law’s online 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.
Instead of lecturing employees with a simplistic list of “do’s” and “don’ts,” Clear Law’s online sexual harassment training 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.
Our assessment ensures that every employee will master the course content—without allowing anyone to fail. To complete the course, the employee must complete the Quiz Show. Each cell in the Quiz Show 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.
Course Versions (50-State Compliant)
Multi-state employers can now comply with state and local harassment training laws in all states with only three-course versions:
To comply with various jurisdictions’ training laws, on certain course pages users select where they work to receive location-specific instruction. As noted above, the 45-minute Fundamentals Version is taken by both supervisors and non-supervisors. Some jurisdictions require that non-supervisors also receive training on supervisors’ duties.
Clear Law also offers an Essentials version and International version.
Essentials Version (20 minutes): Shortened version that covers only the essential content.
International Version: 45-minute course used by employees outside of the United States.
Languages: Each version is available in English, Spanish, and numerous other languages. The International version is available in French, German, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Upon request, we can provide the training in any language.
No Reruns: As discussed above, Clear Law creates a new training each year so that your employees never have to sit through a rerun of a previously taken course.
Covers All Forms of Harassment, Civility, Bullying, and Bystander Intervention
Consistent with EEOC guidelines and court decisions, Clear Law’s training covers not just sexual harassment, but all forms of workplace harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. For example, as required by various state laws, including California SB 396, the training covers harassment based on gender identity and expression.
As required by some states’ laws, such as California law AB 2053 and SB 1343, the training also addresses topics such as workplace civility, bullying, and bystander intervention. We can also cover topics such as unconscious bias.
What is Not Harassment
Our online course teaches employees not only what harassment is 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.
Clear Law Institute’s 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 and lead to employee discipline. As recommended in the report issued by the EEOC Select Taskforce on Sexual Harassment, and as required by certain state and local laws, the course also addresses workplace civility and bystander intervention techniques.
More Than 1,500 Employers Trust Clear Law Institute With Their Compliance Training
Required Legal Expertise for Training
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 laws (SB 1343, SB 396, and AB 1825) specifically require that training providers must have “expertise in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.”
Moreover, training providers must also have expertise in the prevention of “harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.” The trainer provider 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 Institute’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 a graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Johnson brought one of DOJ’s first class-action style sexual harassment lawsuits. He has provided training and consulting to organizations such as the EEOC, Google, the United Nations, and the World Bank. Michael leads our Compliance Advisory Team, whose members have decades of experience practicing employment law for large law firms and Fortune 500 companies.
We Answer Users’ Questions
Several state laws require that online sexual harassment training users be able to submit questions and have those questions answered within a reasonable time frame. The person answering the questions must meet the expertise requirements of state laws. At no additional cost, Clear Law Institute’s Compliance Advisory Team is available to answer questions about the training content within one business day.
Legal Updates at No Cost
Unlike most harassment course providers, Clear Law Institute has in-house legal expertise to ensure that its course is kept up to date with changes in the law. If the law changes so as to change the course instruction, Clear Law will update your course immediately at no cost. Indeed, every year Clear Law updates its training numerous times because of changes in various state laws.
Clear Law’s harassment training addresses all of the required content of all state and local training laws, including those in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, New York State and New York City. As required by various state and local laws, the training addresses topics beyond sexual harassment such as bullying; harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation; and bystander intervention.
Access on All Devices and Bookmarking
Training progress is synced across all devices: computers, tablets, and smartphones. Users can start the online training on one device and finish on another. The course does not have to be completed in one sitting: when a user returns, the course will resume where they left off.
We make delivering the course to your employees effortless. We will either:
Tier 1 Technical Support Provided
You should not have to become a computer support specialist to roll out a harassment course to your employees. Unlike many online course providers, we provide technical support to your employees at no additional cost. If any employee has a problem with the course, they will call us, not you.
We can include your logo, relevant policies, workplace images, and an introductory message from a senior official in your organization.
Policy Review & Acknowledgement
Users can be required to certify that they have read and understood your harassment policy, which is included in the training. We can include a “Policy Review” exercise where users are required to search your policies to find the answers to questions relating to your policies.
Advanced Customizations Available
Clear Law Institute can customize the course further to meet your organization’s training needs. We can even have scenarios take place in your workplace environment.
