    What is Sexual Harassment?

    Sexual harassment is the most common type of workplace harassment. Recent statistics show that more than half of all workers (54%) have experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace. Because of its prevalence and damaging affects to an organization's productivity, morale, and culture, employers must try and actively prevent and eliminate sexual harassment in their organization.

    The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as follows:

    Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when such conduct:

    * explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment
    * unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance
    * creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment

    What are the laws regarding sexual harassment and who needs to comply?

    Workplace harassment, which includes sexual harassment, is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits employers with 15 or more employees from discriminating on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. The law applies to federal, state, and local employers and governs all employment actions. Laws regarding workplace harassment are enforced by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

    In addition, three states (California, Connecticut, and Maine) have their own state laws specifically addressing sexual harassment:

    * California - AB 1825 and AB 2053
    * Connecticut - Connecticut Human Rights and Opportunity Act
    * Maine - Maine Employment Laws Revised Statute, Title 26, Section 807

    How does the pricing work if we buy a mix of employee and manager trainings?

    To keep things simple for you we provide one price for both versions and all you have to worry about is the number of seats. For each set you can choose either employee or manager that way. That greatly simplifies rollout as you can send out a generic set of instructions and the system will prompt each person for which version is most appropriate. We provide a discount based on the total number of seats purchased regardless of whether they are the employee or manager version.

Organizational Training

    Do you offer training that an organization can use to train its employees?

    Yes we do.

  • 2

    Who is the organizational training for?

    Organizational training is for employers/groups that need to train their employees. It provides a single shared login that all employees can login to as well as potential group pricing discounts.

    How does organizational training work?

    Our organizational training option includes a shared multi-user account setup. It involves zero administration as it does not require you to setup user names and passwords. Once your account is setup, everyone logs in using the same username/password. They take the training and once they are complete, each individual takes the final exam. On successfully passing the final exam, each individual enters their name on their certificate and gets a generated pdf certificate immediately for them to save or print off. A copy of that certificate with transcript scores are automatically emailed to the administrator's email address on the account.

    So all you have to do is give everyone the username/password, let them take the training, and sit back and get an email copy as everyone finishes the training. It couldn't be easier.

    If I purchase seats after my intial purchase do I still get a volume discount?

    Your future pricing is based on your intial purchase. So if you bought 25 seats, your pricing would be $23.99 for those 25 seats and also for any future seats you purchased. After that the pricing will continue to drop each time you hit a pricing tier.
