Gov. Phil Bryant signed http://www.governorbryant.ms.gov/Executive%20Orders/EO%201392.pdf">Executive Order 1392 which requires state employees to complete online sexual harassment awareness training.
"This should be a low-cost alternative to expensive seminars and provide a standard of prevention in this litigious society," Gov. Bryant said in his Facebook post announcing the order. "Everyone deserves a workplace free from intimidation and hostility. I will not tolerate sexual harassment in those agencies that fall under my control."
The State Personnel Board offers the training, and the Department of Finance and Administration will help state agencies administer the training, the executive order says. All state agencies must report to the governor's office by June 30, 2017, with evidence that their employees have completed the training.
