Chicago Sexual Harassment Prevention Training 

Media Partners' fully compliant Chicago sexual harassment training features captivating video segments that engage learners.   

Wrap-around instruction ensures that organizations doing business in Chicago can fully meet both state and city sexual harassment prevention training requirements, including an additional 1 hour of training on bystander intervention.

A 7-time award winner, Once & For All provides managers and employees with the education and motivation needed to make meaningful change. 



In April 2022, Chicago revised its sexual harassment laws to make them stronger and to uphold zero tolerance of violence and harassment in the workplace.  These changes require all Chicago employers to go beyond sexual harassment prevention training requirements mandated by the state of Illinois.

Sexual harassment training for Chicago employees must now run one hour, while training for Chicago managers must run 2 hours.  Employees must also receive an hour of training on the topic of Bystander Intervention. This training must be completed no later than July 1, 2023 and be provided annually every year thereafter.  To see the specific Illinois state and Chicago city training mandates, and how they are met by Once & For All, see our Interactive Compliance Guide and Requirements Matrix.
