Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

This sexual harassment prevention training is provided by Brotherhood Mutual® at no cost to your ministry. While it is designed for employees in California, it is being offered to ministries in all states. You are encouraged to refer to your state’s specific harassment prevention web page or your local attorney for guidance as to the training requirements of your state. 

Additionally, your state’s harassment prevention web page may outline the timing and frequency of harassment prevention training. For example, some states require training to be provided shortly after hire and once every two years, but your state may vary. We encourage you to speak with a locally licensed attorney if you have specific questions about what your state requires.
