Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements

By June 25, 2019 October 4th, 2019 No Comments

California law requires that employers with five or more employees train their supervisory employees and their non-supervisory employees on the prevention of Sexual Harassment by January 1, 2020 (and every two years after that). In addition, even if your employees were trained in 2018, the law requires that they are retrained during 2019.

Not only is training mandatory by law, but it is also the smart thing to do. A well-trained workforce can ensure a respectful and productive work environment and reduce an employer’s risk of harassment-related claims.
