Alexander McPherson has finally taken training on how to avoid and prevent sexual harassment. McPherson, a biologist at the University of California at Irvine, had refused to take the training, which is required by state law for all state employees with supervisory responsibilities. McPherson, noting that he has never been accused of harassment, questioned the idea of mandatory training for all supervisors, noted the wealth of information provided by the university about harassment issues, and threatened to leave the university over the issue. The Orange County Register reported that McPherson relented when he realized that if he left the university, other scientists would also be affected. He told the newspaper that the training "is seriously flawed, is insulting to the intelligence at best, a demeaning fraud at worse."
