Public Act 101-0221 amended the Illinois Human Rights Act (“IHRA”) requiring:
Illinois employers to provide annual sexual harassment prevention training by December 31, 2020 and annually thereafter.
The Illinois Human Rights Act considers the following a civil rights violation: An employer, employee, agent of any employer, employment agency or labor organization engages in sexual harassment. [775 ILCS 5/2-102(D)]
Each employer must provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training that complies with section 2-109 of the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA).
Regardless of status (i.e. short-term, part-time, or intern), all employees are to be trained. This also includes independent contractors working on-site.
In accordance with the Public Act 100-076, all licensed professionals with continuing education requirements now must complete at least one hour of sexual harassment prevention training.
