The EssentialSkillz Sexual Harassment Online Training Course is aimed at creating awareness about sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination prohibited under the law but is still a major problem in the workplace. It is defined as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature that has the purpose or effect of:

  • violating a person’s dignity or
  • creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment

Even if a harasser did not intend to cause harm to a victim, it could still be a case of sexual harassment.

To help prevent sexual harassment, it is crucial that people:

  • are aware of how other people might perceive different types of behaviour
  • recognise behaviours that could be considered sexual harassment
  • know how to respond if they experience or witness sexual harassment
  • understand the importance of reporting and how to report a complaint

This course helps employees recognise sexual harassment through a range of scenario-based interactions. It also includes an interactive branching activity that explores how victims and bystanders can respond appropriately. The course concludes by describing the internal and external complaint processes available to victims who have experienced sexual harassment and their rights under the law.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, our Sexual Harassment online course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, eg the organisation’s sexual harassment or complaints policy, all at no extra cost.
