Sexual Harassment: A High Price to Pay

California employers looking for a ready compliance solution for the new California law on sexual harassment training (AB 1825) will find quick and easy one-stop shopping at the website. BTM offers free previews of a variety sexual harassment training programs that meet all the directives of the new law. Those requirements include that training be provided by trainers with “knowledge and expertise” and that training include “practical examples aimed at instructing supervisors in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.”

The new law requires California employers with 50 or more employees to provide two hours of sexual harassment training to all supervisors once every two years. An important feature of the law is that merely sitting supervisors down and showing them a video or requiring them to do some reading would probably not be enough to satisfy the law’s requirement for "classroom … or … effective interactive training and education." But that requirement and more are met by BTM’s state-of-the-art products.

“Our training programs are a turn-key answer to the challenge of compliance with this new law. Here are some of the key benefits our training programs offer: facilitator guides (no need to develop a course from scratch); participant workbooks; PowerPoint presentations; group exercises; case studies; role plays; and certificates of completion,” said Myron Curry, president of BTM. What’s more, BTM’s four most popular programs, "Sexual Harassment: A High Price to Pay," "It's Not Just About Sex Anymore," "Patterns" " and "Sexual Harassment? You Decide" are available in a single free preview package at Also available at the BTM website are free articles on sexual harassment and a host of other critical compliance and management issues.
