Frequently Asked Questions
WHICH STATES STANDARDS DOES OUR TRAINING MEET?
At present there are only six states that require supervisory/employee sexual harassment prevention training; California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, and New York. Our training meets the standards of each of these states’ requirements. However, it is prudent for churches and employers in all states to consider providing sexual harassment training in order to minimize liability risks due to a supervisor's inappropriate comments or because of a supervisor's failure to adequately address a harassment incident.
IN ADDITION TO TRAINING, WHAT OTHER STEPS SHOULD WE TAKE TO SAFEGUARD OUR ORGANIZATION FROM HARASSMENT LIABILITY?
Training is a great first step. In addition, churches and Christian organizations should do the following: 1) create and communicate a Harassment Prevention policy (a sample policy is available for organizations that participate in the training); 2) establish a clear protocol/procedure for reporting, investigating, and stopping any complaint of harassment; 3) throughout the year, talk about your policy and procedures with your staff and volunteers so they know you take harassment prevention seriously; 4) be vigilant about maintaining a respectful and harassment-free environment.
WHAT OTHER SERVICES DOES CHRISTIAN COMPLIANCE RESOURCES OFFER OTHER THAN TRAINING?
Christian Compliance Resources offers churches and Christian organizations, help in all areas of human resources. Many smaller organizations do not have an HR department or person on staff with the time and the expertise to adequately handle HR issues when they arise. We offer services and products to help with compliance, such as handbook creation, policy development, job descriptions and compliance audits. Christian Compliance Resources can also help with hiring, employee relations issues, investigations, communication, and conflict resolution. Finally, Christian Compliance Resources offers an on-call subscription service that provides organizations immediate counsel and advising on all HR related matters from a knowledgeable and competent HR professional.
