Harassment Prevention Training

Harassment Prevention Training

By now, most people are aware of the #MeToo movement, which called to light the continuing problems of sexual harassment in the workplace. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) requires businesses with 50 or more employees to provide supervisors with 2 hours of sexual harassment prevention training within 6 months of employment, and every 2 years thereafter.

Under the new SB 396, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2018, this mandatory training has been expanded to include topics of sexual orientation, gender expression, and gender identity. Businesses must also post a new poster about transgender rights in a prominent area of the building.
