What is the difference between the Illinois and Chicago sexual harassment courses? How do they differ from the harassment course in the compliance library?
Our standard sexual harassment course generally covers the definition of harassment, the different kinds of harassment, and the legal responsibilities of employers from a federal level. The IL harassment course covers additional requirements that are specific to Illinois law (e.g. state-specific resources, which state agency to report harassment to, etc.). The Chicago course is identical to IL, except it is locked to ensure that learners spend the required amount of time within the course. (Chicago has minimum time requirements for harassment training, while IL does not.) Chicago also requires additional bystander intervention training, and we will be releasing a separate course on that topic. This means that Chicago employees will need to take both the Chicago harassment course and the bystander intervention course. We made the bystander intervention training a separate course instead of rolling it into the Chicago course because we anticipate that other clients outside of Chicago will also find the training useful, and we wanted to make the content available to them as well.
