Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

New York State requires every employer to ensure that all employees complete sexual harassment prevention training on an annual basis.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion has developed an online program that meets all New York State requirements for sexual harassment prevention training.  This program is available in UB Learns, and is comprised of two sections:

  1. A PowerPoint and narrative that explain the definition of sexual harassment, examples of harassing conduct, options for reporting internally and to external enforcement agencies, prohibitions against retaliation for reporting harassment, and the obligations of supervisors and managers when they become aware of harassing conduct.  This program also informs faculty and professional staff of their obligations to report sexual harassment and sexual violence that students disclose to them or that they become aware of.
  2. A post training quiz with an acknowledgment of the University's Discrimination and Harassment Policy.

Live Sessions

Departments and areas can schedule a live sexual harassment prevention training for their employees to provide an easy way to complete the training. Contact EDI to schedule a session.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion will also be offering open Zoom sessions as an alternative to completing the training online. Our first Zoom session is on Wednesday, September 27 at 9:00 a.m. You must register in advance for the session if you would like to attend. Please be on time, as we cannot credit late attendees for having received all of the required content. 

If your department has arranged for a session already, your attendance at that session will fulfill the training requirement. Departments can submit a Live Session Attendance Sheet to EDI following the training. 

If You've Completed Training Elsewhere

Many people with UB appointments have taken training elsewhere.  This training will count toward meeting UB's requirements if it meets guidelines established by the New York State Division of Human Rights.
