WeComply, Inc., a leader in web-based ethics and compliance training for corporate employees, has announced a new course on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Athletics. This course is designed for coaches and other sports-related professionals, who have special responsibilities in helping their leagues or schools maintain a respectful athletic environment. The course discusses sexual harassment in the athletic context, including conduct both on and off the field, consensual relationships between coaches and athletes, and the legal duty of coaches and others who observe or learn of inappropriate conduct involving minors.
This 20-minute course begins by explaining what sexual harassment is and giving reasons why it is a concern. Other topics covered in the course are guidelines for conduct, conduct to avoid, how to respond to complaints, and individual responsibilities.
“Recent events have illustrated that the responsibilities of sports-related professionals go beyond simply refraining from engaging in inappropriate conduct,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “Coaches, trainers, officials and others must know what to do if they observe or learn of such conduct. By requiring this training, organizations reinforce their commitment to preventing sexual harassment. ”
