Ensuring that every employee understands their rights and responsibilities with respect to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation is of vital importance to the University.
University policy also requires this training. The Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights ("EOCR") is responsible for ensuring that the University community receives instruction in support of institutional efforts to prevent and address discrimination, harassment, and retaliation (implementing the HRM-009: Preventing and Addressing Discrimination and Harassment and HRM-010: Preventing and Addressing Retaliation policies).
University policies related to non-discrimination, anti-harassment, and anti-retaliation (HRM-009 & HRM-010) apply to all employees of the University, the University Medical Center, and the University College at Wise. This means that all faculty and staff, wage, faculty wage, temporary employees, and students employees, including graduate teaching and research assistants, are required to complete the training.
If you are uncertain whether you are required to complete the training, please email PADHR@virginia.edu or call 434-924-3200.
Please note that sexual and gender-based harassment is covered by the University’s HRM-041: Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence ("Sexual Misconduct Policy"). A separate online training module administered by the Title IX & Sexual Misconduct team addresses these forms of harassment. Please contact the Title IX & Sexual Misconduct team at 434-297-7988 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Under HRM-009 and HRM-010, a supervisor is any person who has authority to:
- undertake or recommend tangible employment decisions (e.g., hiring, firing, and promoting) affecting an employee;
- undertake or recommend academic decisions affecting a student; or
- direct a student’s academic activities.
The following individuals are also considered supervisors:
- faculty members who teach a course or to whom work-study students report; and
- undergraduate and graduate teaching assistants who are responsible for grading course assignments, projects, quizzes, exams, or other coursework.
If you are uncertain which training to complete, please email PADHR@virginia.edu or call 434-924-3200.
Typically, once every two years. However, circumstances may arise where a faculty or staff member may be asked to retake this training or participate in additional in-person PADHR training.

No. PADHR training is separate from the online Not on Our Grounds - Responsible Employee training module, and covers different topics. Therefore, completion of the Responsible Employee training does not satisfy the PADHR training requirement. For questions about the Responsible Employee training or HRM-041: Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence (‘Sexual Misconduct Policy”), please contact the Title IX & Sexual Misconduct team at email@example.com or 434-297-7988.

In order for the system to record a completion, you must advance through each slide/page of the training, submit a response to each question, and when appropriate, actively click on the link to read the applicable UVA policy.
You may begin the training and stop at any point. Although the system will automatically track your progress, you will need to navigate through the introductory pages first before being directed to the NetBadge page. Once you enter your NetBadge information, you will be directed to the beginning of any section you have not completed.
While in the training, you may use the Training Outline on the left side of your screen to return to previous sections for review. A green check mark means that you have completed that section.
Please contact EOCR at PADHR@virginia.edu or 434-924-3200.
If you select the print option, but it does not print, you may need to check your internet browser settings to access the document, or check to see if you are blocking pop-ups. We encourage you to print the certificate for your records, but you are not required to do so because the training system automatically tracks completion.
