Everyone has the right to a workplace, home, educational, or business environment that is free of sexual harassment. Every one.
Beginning January 1, 2020, many licensed professionals in Illinois must complete an approved sexual harassment prevention training course in order to renew their license.
What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment is unwanted, deliberate, or repeated sexual behavior.
It can include the display of sexually suggestive objects, signs, gestures, pictures, notes, or the sending of sexually suggestive emails, voicemails, or text messages to persons who do not want this attention.
Sexual harassment can be subtle or direct. Either way, it can have both personal and professional implications.
It can negatively impact jobs, promotions, raises, income, which ultimately affects a person’s home and personal life.
As more professionals are able to recognize and report, but better yet, PREVENT sexual harassment- the better our chances are of having a safe and healthy work and educational environment for everyone.
