What You Will Learn: Recent changes to the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA) require all Illinois employers to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees by December 31, 2020, and once per year thereafter.  All Illinois employers should begin planning on how they will administer this mandatory training to all employees – including part-time employees, short-term or temporary employees, interns, and so on – especially since the Illinois Department of Human Rights announced recently that it will not extend the December 31, 2020 deadline due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The FCA of Illinois, in partnership with the law firm of SmithAmundsen LLC, has developed a training program designed to help its members and supply chain business partners to train their employees (supervisors and non-supervisors) beginning immediately through a convenient online program that will not exceed 1-hour in length.
