Learning Design

No Reruns

Clear Law develops new compliance training each year so that your employees never have to take the same course twice.

Learning Games

Clear Law’s online sexual harassment and workplace harassment training engages users through interactive learning games. In this “Family Feud” type game, the learner tries to enter all the characteristics protected by federal harassment law.

Story-Based Learning

Clear Law’s online course presents dozens of nuanced scenarios—many of which are based on actual cases. After each scenario, the learner is asked a question and then receives feedback.

No Preaching

Instead of lecturing employees with a simplistic list of “do’s” and “don’ts,” Clear Law’s online sexual harassment training focuses on exploring the nuances of “gray area” situations that employees may face in real life. In this example, learners see how a decision to report or not report harassing behavior can impact others.

“No-Fail” Assessment

Multi-state employers can now comply with state and local harassment training laws in all states with only three course versions:

Course Content

Course Versions (50-State Compliant)

Multi-state employers can now comply with state and local harassment training laws in all states with only three course versions:

  • Advanced (2 hours): For California supervisors and Connecticut supervisors and non-supervisors.
  • Extended (1 hour): For California non-supervisors.
  • Fundamentals (45 minutes): For all supervisors and non-supervisors in all other states.

To comply with various jurisdictions’ training laws, on certain course pages users select where they work to receive location-specific instruction.

As noted above, the 45-minute Fundamentals Version is taken by both supervisors and non-supervisors. Some jurisdictions require that non-supervisors also receive training on supervisors’ duties.

Languages: Each version is available in either English or Spanish.

No Reruns: As discussed above, Clear Law creates a new training each year so that your employees never have to sit through a rerun of a previously taken course.

Covers All Forms of Harassment, Civility, Bullying, and Bystander Intervention

Consistent with EEOC guidelines and court decisions, Clear Law’s training covers not just sexual harassment, but all forms of workplace harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. For example, as required by various state laws, including California SB 396, the training covers harassment based on gender identity and expression.

As required by some states’ laws, such as California law AB 2053 and SB 1343, the training also addresses topics such as workplace civility, bullying, and bystander intervention. We can also cover topics such as unconscious bias.

What is Not Harassment

Our online course teaches employees not only what is harassment but also what harassment is not. In this way, employees are less likely to file harassment complaints for conduct that is not in fact harassment.

Current Topics

Clear Law Institute’s course addresses new topics relating to workplace harassment. For example, the course addresses how the misuse of social media and mobile devices can contribute to a hostile work environment and lead to employee discipline. As recommended in the report issued by the EEOC Select Taskforce on Sexual Harassment, the course also addresses workplace civility and bystander intervention techniques.

Legal Expertise

No Reruns

State laws and court decisions from around the country require employers to ensure that their training is developed and delivered by legal experts. For example, California’s mandatory sexual harassment training laws (SB 1343, SB 396, and AB 1825) specifically require that training providers must have “expertise in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.” Moreover, training providers must also have expertise in the prevention of “harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.” The trainer provider must be an attorney, professor, instructor, human resource professional or harassment prevention consultant with at least two years of expertise in employment law or harassment prevention.

Clear Law Institute’s in-house legal expertise ensures that the course is legally accurate and up-to-date with changes in the law. Clear Law’s CEO, Michael Johnson, is one of the leading experts in harassment law in the country. A former U.S. Department of Justice attorney and a graduate of Harvard Law School, Mr. Johnson brought one of DOJ’s first class-action style sexual harassment lawsuits. The United Nations has retained him to consult on its harassment policy. He has developed online and in-person harassment training used by more than 1.5 million people. He also has provided training on how to investigate sexual harassment allegations to organizations such as Google, the United Nations, and the EEOC.

We Answer Users’ Questions

Several state laws require that online sexual harassment training users be able to submit questions and have those questions answered within a reasonable time frame. In some states, the time frame is designated as no more than two business days. At no additional cost, Clear Law Institute’s legal experts are available to answer questions about the training content within one business day.

Legal Updates at No Cost

Unlike most harassment course providers, Clear Law Institute has in-house legal expertise to ensure that its course is kept up to date with changes in the law. If the law changes so as to change the course instruction, Clear Law will update your course immediately at no cost. Indeed, in the last few years, Clear Law has updated its training numerous times because of changes in various state laws.

50-State Compliant

Clear Law’s harassment training addresses all of the required content of all state and local training laws, including those in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, New York State and New York City. As required by various state and local laws, the training addresses topics beyond sexual harassment such as bullying; harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation; and bystander intervention.
