Delaware Sexual Harassment Prevention Law Requires Interactive Training


Just as California, Connecticut, New York, New York City, Illinois, Maine, and Washington, Delaware’s HB 360 was enacted partly in response to the #MeToo movement. HB 360 applies to all Delaware employers with four or more employees. It includes not only private employers, but HB 360 broadens protections for Delaware workers against sexual harassment. Specific types of workers mentioned in the law include state employees, unpaid interns, applicants, joint employees, and apprentices.



It’s the law. If you have 50 or more employees, you must provide interactive training and education on sexual harassment to all employees and supervisors in the state within one year of commencement of their position and every two years after. The training needs to be provided by trainers or educators with the knowledge and expertise in the prevention of harassment, such as TAP Series. While this requirement is for organizations with 50 or more people, you may want to consider implementing similar training if you are smaller employer. Doing so will ensure that your employees can identify and prevent harassment in your workplace, which will save you from regulatory scrutiny down the road.
