Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Sexual Harassment training for the entire U.S.

Written by David Lamont
Updated over a week ago


Our Sexual Harassment Prevention training content is created in partnership with Fox Rothschild LLP. SHP content is available for all states that mandate Sexual Harassment Prevention training with versions tailored toward supervisors and non-supervisors. For states without mandated SHP compliance, we've created a 'Sexual Harassment Training - Fundamentals' course. All courses automatically translate across 100+ languages and scripts, with up to 99% translation accuracy.

Unlike typical SHP compliance training, employees complete training in the form of micro-lessons or they can complete it in one shift. With Opus, no one has to step foot in a classroom to learn. All employees receive a personalized, digital certificate upon completion.

6 states (CA, CT, DE, IL, ME and NY) have unique requirements for Sexual Harassment Prevention training. We've worked with experts to create a fundamentals version for non-required states. All employees in Opus (supervisors and non-supervisors) are automatically assigned the correct version for their state and role. See the full course catalog below:
