The #MeToo movement has cast a spotlight on sexual harassment in the workplace. That spotlight is shaping public opinion, which in turn, is influencing the best practices employers follow, as well as the policies they implement. Partially in response to these changes, a host of legal developments have altered the legal landscape affecting workplace harassment, including Senate Bill 1343. Beginning this year, employers with 5 or more employees must provide harassment prevention training for all of its employees – full-time, part-time, temporary and seasonal – before January 1, 2020. These training webinars will examine recent legal developments, an employer’s obligation to prevent harassment from occurring in the workplace and its duty to respond to those complaints when they arise. There will be ample room for participant engagement, including space towards the end of the training for any unanswered questions.
Please Note: We are offering two trainings: one for non-supervisors (below) and one for supervisors here.
This 1-hour training is designed for employees who do not supervise staff, and will focus on recognizing, avoiding and handling problematic situations and complaints.
This training is compliant with all California state harassment training regulations.
