Required Harassment Training for Companies with 5 or More Employees
Effective January 1, 2019, California made a substantial change to mandatory sexual harassment prevention training. Now employers with five or more employees must provide this training to all supervisors and employees by January 1, 2020.
In addition to supervisors receiving two hours of sexual harassment prevention training, non-supervisory employees must receive one hour of sexual harassment prevention training. Training must take place within six months of hire or promotion and every two years thereafter.
Online training programs are available through CalChamber, allowing employees to complete verifiable training on their own time and empowering employers to track their employees' progress. 1-hour training programs for non-supervisory employees cost only $25.99 per employee and 2-hour training programs for supervisors cost only $43.99 per supervisor.
