Since 2005, California employers with 50 or more employees have been required to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all managers and supervisors. Senate Bill (SB) 1343 expands the current FEHA requirement for employers with 50 or more employees to provide supervisors with sexual harassment training. Under SB 1343, employers with at least five employees must provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training and education to all supervisory employees, and at least one hour of sexual harassment training to all non-supervisory employees, by January 2020 and once every two years thereafter. Are you in compliance?
Update your supervisory staff’s training in the convenience of your own office with this 2 ½-hour interactive educational workshop, presented by human resource attorney Robert L. Wenzel.
- A detailed definition of sexual harassment and tips on how to distinguish it
- Case studies of sexual harassment situations
- Guidelines for sexual harassment prevention
- A course of action for handling sexual harassment issues and complaints to maintain a positive work environment
- Understand the gender spectrum
- How to recognize and handle “abusive conduct”
Be prepared when your examiners ask for proof of your sexual harassment awareness training! Along with the webinar connection link and handout that you will receive in advance of the program, you will receive a link to online testing, including a certificate for successfully completed tests.
All California employers with five (5) or more employees must provide two (2) hours of sexual harassment awareness training and education to all supervisors, with new training every two years thereafter. New supervisory employees must receive sexual harassment awareness training within 6 months of date of hire or promotion. This program also satisfies the requirements of California law AB 2053, passed in September 2014, for “abusive conduct” training and SB398 for the prevention of harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
