Village of Johnson City – Sexual Harassment Prevention Training (S9-23-16)

Issued Date
August 25, 2023

Audit Objective

Determine whether Village of Johnson City (Village) employees and elected officials completed annual sexual harassment prevention training (SHP Training).

Key Findings

SHP Training was not provided to all employees. Of the 20 total individuals we tested (14 selected employees and all six elected officials), two employees or 14 percent of employees tested did not complete the annual SHP Training.

Additionally, over 30 seasonal workers were excluded from SHP Training and one of the two SHP Trainings provided by the Village did not include all the minimum requirements. As a result, most Village employees were provided with incomplete SHP Training.

Key Recommendations

Ensure all employees are provided, and complete, annual SHP Training that includes all minimum training requirements.

Village officials generally agreed with our recommendations and have indicated they planned to initiate corrective action.
