All paid employees, regardless of position or benefits status, are required by the State of Texas to complete EEO Non-Discrimination & Sexual Harassment Training within 30 days of hire and every two years thereafter. That means if you get a paycheck you need to take EEO training; there are no exceptions.
EEO Training is available in several ways:
- Attend New Employee Orientation. If you are benefits-eligible staff you will receive your initial training at the New Employee Orientation. Two years from the date of your orientation, your certification will expire. You will receive reminder notifications leading up to the date. You may complete refresher the training through one of the following options.
- Attend a New Faculty/TA/RA/GA Orientation. If you are faculty or a student employee and your department offers an orientation with EEO Training you will receive your initial training at the orientation. Two years from the date of your orientation, your certification will expire. You will receive reminder notifications leading up to the date. If your department/college does not hold an orientation, you may attend an instructor-led class or complete the online course offering. You may complete the refresher training through one of the following options.
- Complete EEO training online. You may refresh your training through the online course offering. Log onto SumTotal LMS and register yourself, or contact Talent Development. Once you register for the online training, a start button will appear in the to-do area on your homepage.
- Departments may request training sessions for ten or more employees. A representative from Human Resources Talent Development can facilitate an EEO training onsite. Departments should contact Talent Development to schedule an on-site training.
