New Jersey State Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

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

New Jersey Sexual Harassment Training Requirements: While New Jersey does not have any specific legal requirement for sexual harassment training for non government workers, sexual harassment training in the workplace is highly recommended. Workplace sexual harassment training can help an employer avoid costly lawsuits and reduce liability to the employer. In 2002, the New Jersey State Court held that the courts should consider whether or not an employer had made sexual harassment training available to employees and supervisors when ruling whether the employer had been negligent in preventing sexual harassment. For more information visit the New Jersey Division of Civil Rights Web Page New Jersey State employees are required to take a course called New Jersey Policy Prohibiting Discrimination in the Workplace Training.

The New Jersey Division of Civil Rights published very comprehensive report on sexual harassment in February of 2020. I can be viewed Here

The EEOC is the federal governing body that describes and enforces sexual harassment and discrimination laws. Read more at (EEOC Harassment).
