Sexual Harassment Training Does Not Invite Lawsuits

A fear of some business owners is that the teaching of sexual harassment training to employees is an invitation to encourage lawsuits.

This study, from Caren M. Goldberg at American University, disputes that notion.

In fact, she concludes, the very fact that training was provided may be the best defense in case of a lawsuit.

California mandates sexual harassment training for businesses with 50 or more employees(California AB 1825, now Government Code 12950.1) – and other states are expect to follow soon.
