Chicago Sexual Harassment Prevention Training 2022


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. 


In addition to the new training requirements, other changes include:

  • a revised definition of Sexual Harassment
  • longer "time to report" period
  • increased company liability exposure

If your organization has employees in Illinois as well as in states with a different or no sexual harassment training mandate, we will work with you to ensure the most effective deployment possible. Many organizations in this situation train employees with state-version courses where needed, then use general courses for staff in states without mandates.  State versions of Once & For All, include: 
California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, New York, Texas, Washington


Instructor-Led Training (ILT) is conducted in a classroom setting. Trainers facilitate the class using the Once & For All Leader's Guide, videos, and other support materials.
