Help Prevent Workplace Harassment—Deadlines Approaching in Several States

Provide training for your temporary and permanent workers—and comply with the law—with cost-effective and state-specific training. ASA has introduced a comprehensive online course specifically for staffing company use.

ASA has partnered with Kantola Training Solutions to provide full-service training for the workers staffing companies employ. It allows you to track candidate and employee progress, download status reports, and more. The training was co-developed with Littler, the world’s largest labor and employment law firm.

In Illinois, employees must be trained by Dec. 31, 2020; in California, staffing firms’ internal employees must be trained by Jan. 1, 2021, and temporary employees must be trained beginning Jan. 1, 2021. In Connecticut, certain employees must be trained by Jan. 1, 2021. The training requirements in Delaware, Maine, and New York have been in effect for some time.

ASA also offers a basic harassment prevention training product in collaboration with the New York Staffing Association, an ASA-affiliated chapter.
