2020 Sexual Harassment Prevention:
The #MeToo Impact in Illinois

WHAT EVERY HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL NEEDS TO KNOW!

FORMER GOVERNOR RAUNER OF ILLINOIS SIGNED INTO LAW HOUSE BILL 4953. THIS REGULATION WOULD REQUIRE PROFESSIONALS TO COMPLETE 1 HOUR OF EDUCATION FOCUSED ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT PREVENTION.

Course Description: On the heels of the #MeToo movement, Illinois has taken action by requiring employers to identify, prevent, and remedy sexual harassment in the workplace. Effective January 1, 2019, all Illinois employers must provide annual sexual harassment training for all employees working in the state. This 1-hour training will provide you with an overview of sexual harassment in the workplace – what it is, what it isn’t, how to promote a work culture of non-harassment, a review of the laws governing appropriate and professional conduct in the workplace, and how to investigate and deal with hostile work environment complaints.

Global Desired Learning Outcomes: All workshops are taught by specialists in exposure control. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Explain what constitutes sexual harassment
  • Define the boundaries of what legal behavior is and what activities cross the line and break the law
  • Examples of conduct that constitutes unlawful sexual harassment
  • Summarize relevant state and federal laws prohibiting sexual harassment and the remedies for violations of these laws
  • Summarize the employer’s responsibility to prevent, investigate and correct sexual harassment
  • Understand these boundaries, to make a distinction between behaviors inside and outside the workplace and to lay the expectations of professional and acceptable behavior at work.
