If you are an Illinois employer, as of 2020, you are required to train your employees on sexual harassment annually under the Workplace Transparency Act(“WTA”). This undertaking can be costly and time-consuming for employers, and the Women’s Property Tax Association has engaged Gail Schnitzer Eisenberg, an employee’s civil rights attorney, to bring you free training for your employees. Additionally, we will be seeking MCLE ethics credit for all Illinois attorneys who attend and are hopeful that this will fulfill a portion of your professionalism credits required.
The Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) has developed a Model Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Program to help Illinois employers comply with the Workplace Transparency Act. Gail Schnitzer Eisenberg, an employee’s civil rights attorney, will provide a live webinar training and answer participant questions. The training will include:
  1. An explanation of sexual harassment consistent with the IHRA;
  2. Examples of conduct that constitutes unlawful sexual harassment;
  3. A summary of relevant federal and State statutory provisions concerning sexual harassment, including remedies available to victims of sexual harassment; and
  4. A summary of responsibilities of employers in the prevention, investigation, and corrective measures of sexual harassment; and
  5. Provide all participants with a certificate they can print, sign, and give to their employers who can keep on file to prove they are in compliance with the WTA.
On April 14, 2022, serve lunch in your conference room and have your employees watch our free sexual harassment training.Anyone who is an employee should share this email with their employer. This training is not specific to the property tax industry and can be used by all Illinois employers (except restaurant and bar owners who have additional requirements).
This meeting is expected to run for approximately 1 hour, and the WPTA will be seeking approval to issue CLE ethics credit for any Illinois attorney that watches a live-stream of the program and completes the survey immediately following. Attorneys seeking CLE credit must register individually, watch the live broadcast and complete the survey under their own registration. If approved by the MCLE Board, CLE credit will not be issued if this criteria is not met.
All are welcome to view!
