State of California Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Program
October 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Attorney Robert Nuddleman is back to help our nonprofit organizations comply with their sexual harassment prevention training requirements. California law requires all employers of 5 or more employees to provide 1 hour of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to non-supervisory employees and 2 hours of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to supervisors and managers once every two years.
This law requires the training to include practical examples of harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. The training must take place within six months of hire or promotion and every two years thereafter. Seasonal and temporary employees or employees hired to work less than 6 months, must be trained within 30 calendar days after hire or within 100 hours worked, whichever is earlier.
This interactive training will cover:
- How to identify behavior that may constitute unlawful harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation under both California and federal law
- What steps to take when harassing behavior occurs in the workplace
- How to report harassment complaints
- Supervisors’ obligation to report harassing, discriminatory or retaliatory behavior when they become aware of it
- How to respond to a harassment complaint
- An employer’s obligation to conduct a workplace investigation of a harassment complaint
- What constitutes retaliation and how to prevent it
- The essential components of an anti-harassment policy
- The effect of harassment on harassed employees, coworkers, harassers and employers
- Harassment based on gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation
