The #MeToo movement has renewed attention on sexual harassment in the workplace. California, being at the forefront of workplace protections, passed several anti-harassment laws this year. Importantly, Governor Brown recently signed SB 1343 which requires employers with five or more employees to provide training to all employees (both supervisory and non-supervisory) by January 1, 2020. – California Employers Association
Highlights of the regulation:
- One hour mandatory training for employees
- Two hour mandatory training for supervisors
- Part-time, temporary employees, and independent contractors count toward the minimum employee count of five.
- Training must occur within six months of the employee starting the position and every two years.
- First round of training must be completed by January 1, 2020.
We provide state approved training that meets that requirement. Furthermore, we take on enrolling employees in the course, making sure they receive the course, follow up if they haven’t taken the course, and provide updates on progress of employees.
