The recent national dialogue surrounding sexual harassment in the workplace has brought a new light on a longtime issue, with prevention now being at the forefront. New York has outlined a State Model Policy for organizations to follow to combat workplace incidents. But, many entities are now left looking for affordable resources that allow them to adopt the policy.

LocalGovU offers online courses and a full-service learning management system (LMS) for New York public entities to provide their employees training that meets the new state standards and enables them to achieve compliance.

Risk managers and city managers alike can easily assign this sexual harassment course to employees as a requirement to fulfilling the mandatory training. This interactive course includes video examples of types of sexual harassment, knowledge checks to gauge comprehension of key concepts within the lesson and a final exam.

But, training is just part of the requirement. Organizations are also required to distribute their policy document to all employees in writing or electronically. To meet that part of the standard, administrators can use the custom courses feature within the LocalGovU LMS to upload a policy (in Adobe PDF or Word format), require a read receipt verification and can even add a test to ensure key concepts are understood.
