CA Employers: Harassment Prevention Training Additional Provisions

New California law


New California law adds additional supervisor training for gender-based harassment.

California law currently requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide at least two hours of training regarding prevention of sexual harassment to supervisory employees once every two years, and the training must also be provided within six months of an employee taking a supervisory position.

Under SB 396, employers with 50 or more employees now must, as part of the required training and education for supervisors, also include training for harassment based on gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.

Additionally, each employer must place a poster developed by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) on transgender rights in the workplace.

Finally, SB 396 expands the definition of "individuals with employment barriers" to include transgendered and gender nonconforming individuals.
