Sexual harassment and discrimination prevention training
All University employees are required to attend Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training. Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 284.496 (1)(2)(3) states:
- Within six months after an employee is initially appointed to state service, the employee shall attend a certified class concerning the prevention of sexual harassment.
- At least once every two years after his or her initial appointment to state service, an employee shall attend a certified refresher class or training concerning the prevention of sexual harassment.
- An appointing authority may require an employee to retake any part or all of the classes or training required by subsections 1 and 2, or to participate in any additional classes or training deemed necessary by the appointing authority.
Online training through LawRoom
NSHE has contracted with LawRoom to provide online sexual harassment and discrimination training for its employees. Every employee will receive an invitation to complete sexual harassment and discrimination training through LawRoom.
Invitation course links
Employees will receive their initial email invitation within the first six months of their employment and again every two years. The course link you receive in your invitation email expires after two weeks. If your course link expires, you can log-in directly on the LawRoom website or wait for the next reminder email from Law Room.
Logging in without your invitation course link
If you do not have your email confirmation and login link, you can reset your login information directly on the LawRoom website.
- Visit LawRoom.com
- Click the "Login" link in top right corner of webpage
- Click the "Forgot Login ID/PWD?" link
- Enter your email address, which must match the email address listed in your employee/student record

If you have been previously uploaded to the LawRoom system with the email address you entered, you will receive an email from LawRoom containing your login ID and a link to reset your password. You may then go back and repeat steps one and two above, entering your login ID and new password to log into LawRoom and access any currently enrolled courses. You may also login and print or save your certificates from any previously completely LawRoom courses.
