    Section 5. The Department of Professional Regulation Law
of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois is amended by
changing Section 2105-15.5 as follows:
    (20 ILCS 2105/2105-15.5)
    Sec. 2105-15.5. Continuing education; sexual harassment
prevention training.
    (a) The Department shall require each licensee to complete
sexual harassment prevention training provided by the
licensee's employer, the Department of Human Rights, or any
continuing education provider authorized to provide continuing
education under an Act administered by the Department in
accordance with Section 2-109 of the Illinois Human Rights
Act. The training shall be completed, at a minimum, prior to a
licensee's renewal of his or her license. As used in this
Section, "sexual harassment" means any unwelcome sexual
advances or requests for sexual favors or any conduct of a
sexual nature when: (i) submission to such conduct is made
either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an
individual's employment; (ii) submission to or rejection of
such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for
employment decisions affecting such individual; or (iii) such
conduct has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering
with an individual's work performance or creating an
intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. For
the purpose of this definition, "working environment" is not
limited to a physical location that an employee is assigned to
perform his or her duties and does not require an employment
    (b) For license renewals occurring on or after January 1,
2020 for a profession that has continuing education
requirements, the required continuing education hours shall
include at least one hour of sexual harassment prevention
    (b) (c) The Department may adopt rules for the
