Also Available:

    All Versions
A sequence of original stories conveys important training points as seen through the eyes of the participants.

*Updated in 2018 to comply with SB 396*

Instead of explanations from on-screen narrators, first-hand reporting keeps the action moving and makes it personal. This helps viewers internalize the content and retain lasting impressions that stay with them long after the training is over.

Who Is It For?
This training is directed to managers, supervisors, and "lead employees" who have the authority to control certain aspects of the jobs or working conditions of their fellow employees who are based in the state of California.

What You Will Learn
You will see the consequences and potential harm caused by hostile environment and quid pro quo harassment. You will also learn about protected characteristics, third-party harassment, retaliation, and other forms of abusive behavior. And while sexual and other forms of illegal harassment are covered, our focus is on respect and consideration for others. These scenarios are meant to prevent unwelcome behavior BEFORE it escalates out of control.

Filmed on location, realistic characters interact in seven dramatic stories:
  • Inappropriate talk makes it difficult for an office worker to concentrate
  • Private are revenge-posted posted on social media
  • Lunch hour at a medical center is disrupted by rude comments from an outside vendor
  • A new employee is pressured to go out with a supervisor as part of her “training” in a manufacturing plant
  • City government employees grapple with religious bias and resentment over coworkers who “don’t come from here.\”
  • Sales reps at a convention center mistreat and exclude a colleague because he “doesn’t fit in”
  • A restaurant kitchen is the setting for borderline behavior that makes one coworker uncomfortable even though her peers are clearly enjoying themselves

Our goals with this new program are to improve behavior overall, encourage communication, and help create workplaces that are respectful, productive—and harassment-free!

"I really like Kantola's harassment training DVD's and this is the 4th set I have purchased. Since I train employees every 2 years, I need fresh material for those managers who have been trained before. Thanks for your quality service."Don Dressler
