Effective Jan. 1, 2019, California made a substantial change to mandatory sexual harassment prevention training. Now employers with five or more employees must provide this training to all supervisors and employees by Jan. 1, 2020.

In addition to supervisors receiving two hours of sexual harassment prevention training, nonsupervisory employees must receive one hour of sexual harassment prevention training. Training must take place within six months of hire or promotion and every two years thereafter.

After CalChamber held 2019 Employment Law Updates seminars up and down the state in January, attendees showed there are still many unanswered questions about complying with the new training requirements.

CalChamber’s new white paper, Required Harassment Prevention Training FAQs, answers all of those questions. The white paper covers:

  • Who is considered a “qualified trainer;”
  • Whether employers must train seasonal or temporary employees;
  • The various types of training that comply with the requirements;
  • How long the training must be; and
  • Much more.
