Mandatory Sexual Harassment & Ethics Training

Mandated Yearly Sexual Harassment Training

All employees of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette are required to complete Sexual Harassment training once per calendar year.  This includes anyone employed in the following designations:  classified employee, unclassified employee, faculty, adjunct employee, casual labor, transient, fellow, graduate or teaching assistant and student worker.

The Sexual Harassment training was mandated by Louisiana Senate Concurrent Resolution 107 passed in 2012 wherein the Louisiana Senate resolved that all state agencies should provide one hour of sexual harassment training to each public employee each year.  UL-Lafayette has made the e-course, HR Preventing Sexual Harassment, available for all UL-Lafayette employees through Moodle.  This course will teach employees how to define sexual harassment, identify potentially harassing behaviors, recognize forms of sexual harassment and partner with Human Resources in the complaint process at the University. 

Here are instructions on how to access the e-course:

  • This training will not work with Internet Explorer.  You must use Mozilla Firefox and make sure pop-ups are enabled for the training to work properly. 
  • Log in to ULINK using your assigned CLID and Password.
  • Click on the Moodle icon located on the top right of your screen.
  • Log in to Moodle using the same CLID and Password you used for ULINK.  The log in area is located on the far right side of your screen.
  • Once logged in to Moodle the HR Preventing Sexual Harassment training should be assigned to you under My Courses on the right hand side of your screen.  If it is not listed, please email trainingcoordinator@louisiana.edu so it can be assigned to you.  
  • Click on the course name and then click Enter to begin the e-course.  Again, make sure you are using Mozilla Firefox and have enabled pop-ups.
  • You must complete all three (3) sections of the course and take the required test at the end.  Once completed in its entirety, each employee will automatically be given credit for taking the course.  There is nothing that you need to print or send to Human Resources.  These completions will be tracked by Human Resources. 

For Department’s with employees who do not have computer access, please email trainingcoordinator@louisiana.edu to arrange group training for those employees.

Mandated Yearly Ethics Training

In response to Louisiana Revised Statute 42:1170, all public employees are also required to complete one hour of training on the Code of Governmental Ethics each year. Impacted employees include the following groups: classified, unclassified, faculty, adjunct, casual labor, transients, fellows, graduate or teaching assistants, and student workers.

The required training can be accessed on the Louisiana Ethics Administrations website:  Ethics Board website

  • Please register as a new yser if this is your first time taking the training.  This will allow you to set up your User ID and Password.  If you have taken the course online before, please go ahead and login using your email address and password.
  • Upon completion of course, you will be able to print a certificate of completion.  Please send a copy of this certificate to the Human Resources office.

For Department’s with employees who do not have computer access, please email trainingcoordinator@louisiana.edu to arrange group training for those employees.

*According to the statute, failure to comply with the requirements of training constitutes a violation of the Ethics Code. Any public employee who is found to have violated any provision of any law within the jurisdiction of the Ethics Board can be removed, suspended, or ordered to have a reduction in pay or demotion by the Ethics Board. The board can also impose a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars, or both.

The State requires that we are able to show proof that all employees have taken the mandated training so we ask that all employees login and do the training individually unless the training is coordinated by HR in a group setting.
