Maine Sexual Harassment Training Guide Now Available

Maine has released a sexual harassment training checklist, which certain employers must use to develop a sexual harassment training program.

Checklist
In accordance with a previous law, Maine has developed a compliance checklist covering the sexual harassment training requirements noted below in the “Background” section. Covered employers must use the checklist to develop a sexual harassment training program, and must keep a record of the training (including a record of employees who have received the required training) for at least 3 years. These requirements are currently in effect.

Background
In workplaces with 15 or more employees, employers must conduct a sexual harassment education and training program for all new employees within one year of commencement of employment that includes certain information. Employers must also conduct additional training for supervisory and managerial employees within one year of commencement of employment that includes specific information. Click here (§ 3) for more details.
