LawRoom Online Training

Compliance Training is now Online!

Human Resources has partnered with a new vendor, LawRoom, to provide Compliance Training online.  LawRoom is a nationally recognized vendor for Higher Education and is used by many major universities as well as by many of our IUC schools in Ohio.

Wright State is committed to our core values outlined in the Empower Strategic Plan. Two such values, learning and relationships are prominent in the opportunity provided through the addition of LawRoom. This training supports employee learning and the building of relationships guided by mutual respect and civility to one another.  These courses will help provide employees and supervisors with relevant information and specific case examples and ensure university compliance. Some courses support general knowledge building and others provide University  specific guidelines.

To sign up for a course contact Sherri Maxwell-Nickel, to receive an email with a link to the LawRoom Management System.

Below you will find the compliance courses we are currently offering through LawRoom.

Employee Courses:

Prevent Workplace Violence
All employees / 60 minutes

This course is designed to raise awareness of workplace violence and reduce the risk of injuries if an incident should occur. Besides identifying the five most common types of attacks and four types of workplace attackers, the course explains how employees should respond in emergencies.

Bullying in the Workplace
All employees / 30 minutes

Bullying is now four times more common than illegal discrimination and harassment, and has devastating long-term effects on both the workforce and on overall organizational retention. Still, many managers don’t know how to spot or handle bullying, and most employees don’t know how to prevent becoming a victim of bullying.

Ethics & Corruption: Tools for an Ethical Workplace
All Employees/ 45 minutes

This is a foundational ethics course that helps employees make good choices. This course begins with the perspective that employees know the difference between right and wrong, but certain circumstances can make it difficult to act upon that knowledge. This course helps employees make better decisions by providing insight into competing pressures affecting daily decisions and practice overcoming the obstacles to doing what is right.

Intersections: Preventing Discrimination and Harassment
All employees/60 minutes

This course is designed to raise awareness about workplace harassment and discrimination, as well as campus sexual violence, to reduce or prevent incidents of misconduct.

It covers essential material relating to harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and abusive conduct in a focused interactive course that will engage employees and give them the skills for responding to and preventing harassment and abusive conduct in the workplace.

Diversity: Skills for Collaboration
All Employees / 60 minutes

As the world around us is changing and getting more complex, so is the workplace. It’s an increasingly diverse workforce. Since people, in general, are not comfortable with change or the unfamiliar, employees must learn to collaborate with those who are both like and unlike themselves for maximum individual productivity and organizational effectiveness. This course is designed to help employees successfully work together with diverse co-workers by encouraging respectful behavior, reducing bias, and explaining how cooperation can overcome conflict. The course also identifies the challenges and opportunities arising from human diversity, and helps employees understand the need for a respectful workplace and the barriers that prevent full participation.

Bridges: Building a Supportive Community
All employees/60 minutes

LawRoom developed this course to help colleges and universities comply with employee education requirements relating to sexual misconduct under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and Section 304(a)(5) of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (known as the "Campus SaVE Act"). This course trains faculty and staff on how to recognize, report, and prevent sexual misconduct against students, covering sexual and interpersonal violence awareness and prevention subjects required under Title IX guidance, the Campus SaVE Act, and the final VAWA regulations.  

Bridges includes an extensive discussion about what constitutes sexual misconduct, from verbal sexual harassment to sexual and interpersonal violence, and includes information and interactive scenarios aimed at ensuring employees know how to identify and report incidents of sexual misconduct to campus officials so that schools can take prompt and appropriate action.

In addition, as required by the Campus SaVE Act, the course includes summaries of the legal definitions of consent, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and provides copies of the relevant statutes for the applicable jurisdiction within the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Supervisor Courses

Intersections: Supervisor Anti-harassment
Supervisor/60 minutes

This course is designed to raise awareness about workplace harassment and discrimination, as well as campus sexual violence, to reduce or prevent incidents of misconduct.

This course teaches faculty and staff on how to recognize, report, and prevent sexual misconduct against students, covering awareness and prevention training requirements required by Title IX guidance, the Campus SaVE Act, and VAWA regulations.

Duty to Prevent Violence
Supervisors/ 30 minutes

This course teaches supervisors to recognize and prevent workplace violence. It shows them how they can examine possible risks in their workplace, create a workplace that does not tolerate violence, and encourage employees to help keep their workplace safe. The course also trains supervisors about their responsibilities when hiring and terminating employees, how to respond to incidents of workplace violence, and how to investigate and respond after a workplace violence situation.
