Annual Sexual Harassment Prevention Training is Now Available.

What’s new for FY 2023?

The Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Employees and the Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Supervisors/Managers have been shortened. The length of each training is now 30 minutes. The shortened versions will be available beginning July 1, 2022, kickoff of the FY 2023 training period. Check with your Human Resources Director for dates and the availability of training at your agency or entity.

Who is required to take the training?

Employees of Executive Branch agencies, authorities, boards, and commissions are required to complete annual mandatory sexual harassment prevention training, as well as supervisor and manager-specific training before or by July 1, 2023. The requirement follows the State’s implementation of a Statewide Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy and Investigation Procedures that promote a workplace free from sexual harassment and retaliation.

On January 14, 2019, Governor Brian P. Kemp signed an Executive Order for Preventing Sexual Harassment in the workplace, furthering Georgia’s commitment to providing a harassment-free environment for employees and citizens who interact with State Government.

The Executive Order, signed on the Governor’s first day in office, required a Statewide Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy and affirmed that the State of Georgia does not tolerate sexual harassment or retaliation in any form.

Need more information?

The Department of Administrative Services (DOAS)/Human Resources Administration (HRA) Division has a dedicated website that provides information on the policy and the mandatory training. For more info, visit
