As a member of the SIA pool, district personnel have the advantage of networking with their colleagues from other member districts.  The opportunity to share information improves efficiencies and increases cost savings by not “reinventing the wheel.”  Our monthly forum addresses issues related to safety, wellness, compliance requirements, and more.  Information and resources will be shared by visiting speakers, SIA staff presentations, and committee discussions.  All district staff are welcome to attend, especially when the topic relates to their responsibilities and tasks.

Sexual Harassment Workshop - Managers
March 20, 2019
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Print Details Type of event: Workshops

Sexual harassment continues to be a widespread problem encountered by women and men in the work force today.  Sexual harassment can cover a wide range of behaviors and involve co-workers, supervisors and independent contractors. 

Supervisors (anyone with actual or constructive supervisory authority over another employee) are required to attend a 2 hour training every 2 years.  Attendees will come away with the tools necessary to prevent harassment in the workplace and with a clear understanding of the consequences for violating district policy as well as the law. 

Note: As part of the training, State regulations require employers to comply with the items noted here.  SIA strongly recommends that the district comply with these requirements.

  • Provide a copy of the district’s harassment policy to participants and require each supervisor to read and acknowledge in writing receipt of that policy.  The written acknowledgement should be included in the employee’s personnel file.                                                
  • Maintain documentation of training to track compliance.  Documentation should include name of the supervisory employee, the date of the training, the type of training and name of trainer.  A copy of the sign-in sheet is available upon request.

Seating is limited!
