California Assembly Bill (AB) 1825, enacted in 2004, mandates sexual harassment training for California employers with 50 or more employees. Important: when calculating the number of employees, all workers count, whether they are full-time, part-time, or temporary. Even contractors may count, if they are “providing services pursuant to a contract.” If in doubt whether this law applies to you, contact us.
The law requires two hours of interactive training every two years, and to all new supervisory employees within 6 months of taking a supervisory position. Although online training is available, we have found in-person trainings to be most effective, as they force employees to actually pay attention and engage in the topic.
We believe our training also helps your supervisory employees become better leaders, and our frank discussions emphasize the importance of “walking the walk” instead of clicking through a series of webinar slides. Your employees will also be given written materials, including detailed instructions on how to conduct a harassment investigation, should they need to do so. This is also an excellent time for supervisory employees to ask “what if…” questions that help them improve their management skills.
