The following states have special requirements for training their citizens, and Syntrio has crafted training programs to meet each state’s requirements:


What is Employment Law? 

Employment law is a body of statutes and regulations that govern the relationship between employers and the people they employ. Across the globe, various laws protect people from discrimination, ensure employers comply with wage and hour laws, and provide an anti-harassment and generally positive and productive working environment.  

In the United States, employers are mainly concerned with a series of federal and state discrimination and harassment laws. These legislative measures help define discrimination in the workplace, harassment in the workplace, and what characteristics or categories are protected from discrimination. Additionally, the regulations implementing anti-discrimination laws and anti-harassment laws provide employees with guidance on how to report discrimination in the workplace, file a discrimination complaint, and whether harassment training for employees is required.  

Is Syntrio’s Employment Law Training Compliant with Harassment Training Requirements in States with Mandatory Harassment Training Laws?  

Yes. Syntrio’s employment law training courses are tailored to fully comply with mandatory harassment training for managers and employees laws in all states and municipalities that have enacted legislation. Our library of discrimination and harassment in the workplace courses also exceeds state and municipal regulatory guidance on anti-harassment and anti-discrimination efforts that recommend (but do not require) employment law training. Likewise, Syntrio has developed discrimination, and harassment courses for local governments, anti-harassment training that meets industry-specific requirements, and updated bullying and workplace harassment training to comply with employment laws enacted or recommended by employment laws in several states and localities.  

Will Syntrio’s Employment Law Training Courses Help My Organization Achieve its Goal of Preventing Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace?  

Yes. While it is impossible to prevent every individual from filing a discrimination complaint, Syntrio’s courses will educate employees on what laws protect employees from job discrimination and harassment and how to report a sexual harassment incident at work internally. By fleshing out the workforce’s understanding of topics like “what is verbal sexual harassment?” and “what is gender harassment in the workplace?” employees will learn just as much about what is not workplace harassment and discrimination as they will know when and how to file an employment discrimination complaint initially.  

Syntrio believes that by giving employees all the information they need and critical internal reporting strategies, your workforce will be most comfortable coming to management or leadership to resolve bullying and harassment in the workplace or any hostile work environment issues before taking additional measures. That said, all state mandatory harassment training requirements require sexual harassment training courses to include information on how to report a claim of sexual harassment or employment discrimination, and Syntrio’s courses indeed include that information but emphasize the employer’s desire to act on the concern before a need for a formal complaint arises.

Why Trust Syntrio When Searching for Harassment in the Workplace and Anti-Discrimination Training? 

Since the late 1990s, Syntrio has recognized the relationship between harassment in the workplace, employment discrimination, and organizational culture. Throughout the time we have been providing discrimination and harassment training, there have been multiple state anti-harassment laws requiring mandatory sexual harassment prevention training enacted, and Syntrio is always ahead of the curve.

How Does Syntrio’s Approach to Harassment Prevention Training Differ from other Anti-Harassment Training Available in the Market?

Syntrio believes that employees should be empowered to speak up about their concerns and know how to report discrimination in the workplace. When employers educate their leadership on how to listen up to problems and help employees understand what to do when they have a concern or lack of understanding about what constitutes illegal behavior like discrimination in the workplace, leaders and managers should be able to not just comply with employment laws, but also take action to stop the potentially illegal behavior immediately.  

Syntrio’s approach to conducting anti-harassment training sets it apart from the competition in that it is developed not only for compliance with mandatory harassment and discrimination training law but also is created with an approach toward developing harassment training for employees that will better their understanding of anti-harassment and anti-discrimination laws and regulations and also allow them to take away lessons that can be used outside the office. In recent years, more employers (both in the United States and elsewhere) have been operating in jurisdictions that have enacted mandatory sexual harassment training laws. For this reason (and many others), Syntrio’s industry-leading discrimination and harassment in the workplace training courses are trusted by over 6,000 organizations worldwide.
