CA law requires all employers with 50 or more employees to provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to supervisors. SB 1343 extended this requirement to employers with five (5) or more employees and ensure similar training is provided in multiple languages for all workers. This training provides employees with information and know about sexual harassment and their rights are under the law.
Any employer who employs 5 or more employees, including temporary or seasonal employees must provide at least 2 hours of sexual harassment training to all supervisory employees.
Non-supervisory employees must receive at least one hour of sexual harassment training.
Initial training must occur on or before January 1, 2020. It must be repeated every two years thereafter.
From 2005 to 2015, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received approximately 85,000 sexual harassment complaints. Of the charges that detailed in what types of jobs were involved,
- 2 % came from the hospitality and food service industry
- 4% came from retail trade
- 7% came from manufacturing
If you are in any of these industries, you are clearly at risk.
Harassment Training makes good business sense. A definition of sexual harassment any unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Do you even know what that mean?
