1. What is Harassment Prevention training?
Harassment Prevention training is a negotiated training requirement offered by Contract Services that covers how to recognize, prevent and report harassment, discrimination and retaliation.
There are two online courses. Your classification or job duties will determine which course you will be required to complete.

The “HP1” – Harassment Prevention 1 (1-hour) course will assist individuals to identify behaviors that create or contribute to unlawful harassment, discrimination and retaliation. It also offers information on how to respond to incidents of harassment in the workplace. Individuals who have completed “HP2” – Harassment Prevention 2 will receive credit for “HP1” – Harassment Prevention 1.

The “HP2” – Harassment Prevention 2 (2-hour) course will assist individuals to identify behaviors that create or contribute to unlawful harassment, discrimination and retaliation. It also offers information on how to assist in preventing and responding to incidents of harassment in the workplace.

2. Why is Harassment Prevention training necessary?
Industry unions and producers negotiated Harassment Prevention training because they agreed that preventing unlawful harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the workplace is important. The law requires individuals with supervisory responsibilities to retake harassment prevention training once every 2 years. Others will be required to retake Harassment Prevention training on a periodic basis.

By completing the training through Contract Services, you won’t have to take harassment prevention training each time you work for different producers, if the training is recognized by them.

3. When will I be required to take Harassment Prevention training?
Initial timelines will be assigned by Local and Classification. You will be mailed† a notice when your Harassment Prevention training timeline is approaching and action is required. You may also periodically check the Required Course List or the Online Roster, or call us at 818.847.0040 ext. 1200.

4. How often will I be required to retake this training?
Individuals in classifications that are required to take the “HP2” course will need to retake their training once every 2 years. Other individuals will be required to retake the training on a periodic basis, assigned to timelines by Local and Classification. The date you last completed the course will determine when you will be required to retake it.
