HERE TO HELP YOU
Georgetown Main Street is here to help you. When you succeed, we all succeed.
GMS offers services to help the small and local businesses along the commercial corridor.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING
Georgetown Main Street has partnered with the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) to provide free Tipped Wage Worker Amendment Act Anti-Sexual Harassment training to establishments in the Georgetown Main Street jurisdiction.
The Tipped Wage Workers Fairness Amendment Act (TWWF) requires District employers who hire individuals earning tips as wages to complete an anti-sexual harassment training by a DC Office of Human Rights (OHR) certified trainer every two years. The deadline to complete TWWF anti-sexual harassment training is August 31, 2023. The implementation of Initiative 82 does not affect this requirement.
Who must get the training? Employers must provide an anti-sexual harassment training course to the following individuals:
Owners and Operators (Online or in-person training)
Managers (In-person training only)
Employees (Online or in-person training)
Training will be offered in two sessions; each session is 90-mins and will include Spanish translation:
