Connecticut Sexual Harassment Prevention & Awareness Training Compliance
Sexual Harassment Prevention and Awareness Training requirements for Connecticut have been extended from October 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021.
Connecticut’s Time’s Up Act requires employers in the state to provide existing employees with two hours of Sexual Harassment Prevention and Awareness Training. Employers must also provide two hours of this training to new hires within six months of their hire date.
Our live, interactive training programs are designed to not only meet the State’s requirements, but to also influence behaviors, change workplace cultures, and create awareness. These sessions are available as in-person events or can be delivered via Zoom technology. Our web-based sessions are designed to mimic an in-person classroom learning environment.
