Sexual harassment training helps learners identify and respond to sexual harassment in the retail industry.

Nearly one in six charges of sexual harassment filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) comes from the retail industry, according to EEOC. Due to the public-facing and decentralized nature of the work, retail employees are uniquely vulnerable to sexual harassment.

These experiences can take an emotional, psychological, and physical toll on employees, resulting in high turnover, low morale, and lost productivity. In addition, companies that fail to address claims of sexual harassment can suffer costly court cases, negative publicity, and reputation damage.

There are multiple definitions of sexual harassment, and all of them contain a degree of subjectivity. Recognize that sexual harassment is not a black and white issue because it involves subjective experiences. This training session will help you identify behaviors that constitute sexual harassment and techniques you can use in response to those behaviors to help keep your workplace respectful and safe.

This online course is designed to help identify and respond to sexual harassment in the retail industry. Specifically, this training will teach employees how to recognize illegal behavior from coworkers and customers, and how to respond in the unfortunate event that it does occur.

NOTE: The training provided by NHPA is meant to give you a convenient and affordable option for general sexual harassment prevention training.
