The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) is the leading nonprofit in providing information and tools to prevent and respond to sexual violence. NSVRC translates research and trends into best practices that help individuals, communities, and service providers achieve real and lasting change.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and related conditions, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, and other laws that apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.

The mission of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans by providing effective health and human services and by fostering sound, sustained advances in the sciences underlying medicine, public health, and social services. You can learn more about sexual harassment in the workplace procedures and protocols here and acquire the steps to file a complaint.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) protects workers, promotes diversity, and enforces the law. OFCCP holds those who do business with the federal government (contractors and subcontractors) responsible for complying with the legal requirement to take affirmative action and not discriminate based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, disability, or status as a protected veteran.

Workplace Training Resources

Here are some workplace sexual harassment prevention training resources. Please note that some are free, and some are paid.

The Civil Rights Department provides free online training courses on preventing sexual harassment and abusive conduct in the workplace that satisfy California’s legal training requirements pursuant to Government Code section 12950.1.


California law requires all employers of 5 or more employees to provide training to their supervisory and nonsupervisory employees on sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention. Every two years, nonsupervisory employees must receive at least one hour of training, and supervisory employees must receive at least two hours. The training may be completed all at once or in segments as long as the applicable hourly total requirement is met.

Traliant creates engaging and effective compliance training courses that help organizations stay updated on workplace requirements and expectations, instill respect and understanding in employee interactions, and enable employees to be their best selves at work. They offer training material regarding sexual harassment prevention and retaliation prevention.

EVERFI’s online sexual harassment training targets problematic workplace behaviors and helps transform all levels of employees into active bystanders. They have a team of in-house attorneys who can help you exceed current compliance laws and maintain your training to incorporate future state or federal sexual harassment training mandates.

NAVEX offers tools to better understand risk and compliance health and manage GRC programs simply, efficiently, and holistically. You can find training and courses regarding sexual harassment and more.

Kantola is an innovative eLearning company focused on diversity, equity, & inclusion, and harassment prevention.

Sexual Harassment Training is a company that offers both individuals and organizations training material to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. They offer two versions of their training for individuals who are looking to either obtain their certification to provide to an employer/organization as proof of training for compliance purposes or to further their knowledge of this critical topic, and two versions for organizations looking to train their employees and managers/supervisors on sexual harassment, laws, and proper behavior.


For individuals, they offer: 


  • A one-hour course for regular employees 
  • A two-hour course for managers and supervisors


For organizations, they offer:


  • A one-hour course for regular employees
  • A two-hour course for managers and supervisors 


Their training is valid for all 50 states and also meets the specific state requirements of California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, and New York. But Connecticut employees must take the two-hour supervisor version to satisfy Connecticut State training requirements for all employees. 

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) creates better workplaces where employers and employees thrive together. They offer sexual harassment training for their members who are employees, work in HR, employers, and more.

Any person who is neutral in an agency’s ADR program to resolve EEO complaints must be familiar with the EEO laws and processes. In particular, neutrals must understand the theories of discrimination and the remedies available. The Commission, through its Revolving Fund program, provides agencies with EEO training for a fee.
