Indiana State Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

How can sexual harassment training in the workplace protect my company from liability in Indiana?

Indiana Sexual Harassment Training Requirements: While Indiana doesn’t have any specific legal requirement for sexual harassment training for non-government workers, sexual harassment training in the workplace is highly recommended as it can reduce liability to employers and help prevent sexual harassment altogether.

Sexual harassment and retaliation training is required for all government employee and managers. For more on workplace harassment in Indiana visit the Indian State Personnel Department Web Page.

The EEOC is the federal governing body that describes and enforces sexual harassment and discrimination laws. Read more at (EEOC Harassment). According to the EEOC sexual harassment and other forms of employment discrimination violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).

The EEOC found that in 2018, 33.8% of 1,890 workplace discrimination charges filed in Indiana were related to sexual harassment. These 639 charges constituted 2.5% of the total sexual harassment charges filed in the US that year.

In 2019, The town of North Liberty, Indiana paid a $12,000 settlement to resolve a sexual harassment case by the EEOC. They found that the complaining officer was harassed and was forced to resign due to retaliation for the complaint. The settlement also required the town to provide all of its employees with sexual discrimination and harassment training. This mandate underscores the importance of sexual harassment training and how it can reduce liability to companies and government organizations. Read more on the story Here.

There are a number of steps the EEOC recommends that employers take to reduce their chances of liability for sexual harassment claims.

  1. Implementing a strong and well understood sexual harassment policy.
  2. Providing a robust sexual harassment training program for training employees and supervisors.
