Sexual harassment lawsuits cost companies tens of millions of dollars. You can avoid sexual harassment lawsuits with the right sexual harassment training.
Plus, you’ll be complying with California law. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about California law regarding sexual harassment training and what a good training course provides.
What California Law Says
In the past, California companies with 50 or more employees had to legally provide sexual harassment education and training to their supervising employees. However, the law has changed.
California law SB-1343 requires all California employers with 5 or more employees to provide training by January 1, 2021. The deadline is looming. Plus, companies must have both supervisory and non-supervisory employees take the training.
Furthermore, the law requires companies to provide this training in both English and Spanish.
The sexual harassment training course must be minimum of one hour of training for employees and at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training for supervisors. These courses can be taken online.
If you want to fully comply with California law, find a course that meets the requirements of California Government Code Section 12950. This section combines Assembly Bills 1825 and 2053, Senate Bill 778, 396, 1343, and 1300.
Once you have your employees finish a training course, be aware that these same employees need to complete sexual harassment training every two years. If you hire a new employee, they must complete sexual harassment training within their first six months of working for you.
