• examples of conduct that would constitute unlawful sexual harassment
• information concerning the federal and state statutory provisions concerning sexual harassment and remedies available to victims of sexual harassment
• information concerning employees’ rights of redress and all available forums for adjudicating complaints
• information addressing conduct by supervisors and any additional responsibilities for such supervisors

Each employee in attendance will receive a signed acknowledgment form confirming they completed this training. Please note, late arrivals will not receive an acknowledgment form.
