Illinois Sexual Harassment Training Requirements

As of January 1, 2020, all Illinois employers are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training to their employees every year, regardless of the size of the company.  Illinois employers will have until January 2, 2021 to train all employees on harassment prevention. Employers will need to train all independent contractors and freelancers in addition to company employees.
