Online Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
The Office of Human Resources at
University is pleased to
offer online training on prevention of sexual harassment. The administration
strongly supports an environment free from harassment and requires training for
all full-time faculty and staff. Online tutorials are tailored to the specific
needs of Faculty, Supervisors, Non-Supervisors, or Students. Any
member of the JSU community can now take the appropriate online tutorial that
explains the types of inappropriate behavior, what the law and JSU policy are
regarding the issue and how to go about reporting this type of behavior.
Sexual Harassment Prevention training is available 24/7 to allow everyone
to take the training on their own time line. However, non-exempt and classified
employees are required to take the training during their normal working hours. This training is mandatory for all full-time
faculty and staff and must be completed by December 7, 2007. The program will take approximately 45
minutes to complete and may be interrupted and bookmarked if necessary and
resumed at a later time on that same computer. Once the employee successfully
completes the program, the Office of Human Resources will receive an email
notification of the completion to document the employee file. A certificate of
completion may be printed for their personal records.
Karen Davis, Director of Human Resources or Judy Harrison,
Assistant of Human Resources is available upon request to makes rounds to the
deans and departments to talk about the training program. Every new faculty and
staff member and new student already receives a copy of the sexual harassment
prevention policy in their handbook when they come to campus and when they
access to this online program. The online training allows individuals to move
through the program at their own pace.
As recommended by our program review, this is another step in
making more information available to our faculty and staff through the Office
of Human Resources web page.
site was designed by New Media Learning LLC, a company that develops similar
sites for private industry, institutions of higher education and government
entities. Each site is tailor-made to suit the client’s individual policies,
but the federal law on sexual harassment is the same for everyone.
In addition to the faculty, staff,
supervisory, non-supervisory, and student modules, JSU is pleased to offer
training to small businesses within the community. By special arrangement with
New Media Learning, Jacksonville
has obtained authorization for small employers located in
with not more than fifty (50) employees in total, to use this program free for
employee training. Larger employers may use this program for demonstration and
evaluation, but must obtain a license from New Media Learning for instructional
