Workplace Sexual Harassment (Watch)

HB 417 (Eskamani) requires the Florida Commission on Human Relations to develop a model sexual harassment prevention policy. The bill specifies the minimum requirements and contents of the policy. It requires every employer in the state to adopt the model policy or to establish a policy that equals or exceeds the minimum standards provided in the model policy. The bill requires employers to provide a written copy of the policy to employees and post the policy in a conspicuous location. It directs the commission to produce a model sexual harassment training program and specifies the content for such program. The bill requires employers to use the model training program or to establish a training program that equals or exceeds the model program. (O’Hara)
