Sexual Harassment Training (2020)

18 August 2020

Deadline fast approaching…Sexual Harassment must be completed by January 1, 2021, for supervisors and non-supervisory employees. Training is required every 2 years.

Every California employer with 5 or more employees must provide 1 hour of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to non-managerial employees and 2 hours of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to managerial employees.

Part-time and temporary employees, plus independent contractors count toward the minimum employee count of five employees.

Training must occur within six months of the employee starting the position (and every two years thereafter).

There is also a new requirement for temporary or seasonal employees. Beginning January 1, 2020, for seasonal and temporary employees, or any employee that is hired to work for less than six months, an employer shall provide training within 30 calendar days after the hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first. In the case of a temporary employee employed by a temporary services employer (as defined by the Labor Code), to perform services for clients, the training must be provided by the temporary services employer, not the client.

California employers must take steps to prevent harassment in the workplace and failure to do so can lead to increased liability.

Don’t wait until the last minute, schedule training by either emailing Friday@mrsoshasafety.com or call Teddi at 714.717.9389.

Instructor-led training provided in person or online, based on your preference.
