Invitrogen to Implement Management System to Track Sexual Harassment Training

NEW YORk, April 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Invitrogen will use a "learning management system" made by Boston-based TrainCaster to automate and track sexual harassment training compliance, according to a TrainCaster statement issued today.


Invitrogen was sued last December by a former employee for sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and creating a "hostile work environment," GenomeWeb News reported in January.


The TrainCaster system, which is scheduled for deployment at US's Invitrogen sites in the second quarter, automates training record-keeping, compliance status tracking, scheduling, testing, and "training  resource management" via an Internet-ready software application, TrainCaster said.


"Invitrogen has a strong commitment to ensuring training compliance among its employees," said Lynn Stockdale, TrainCaster executive vice president, in the statement.
