California Harassment Prevention Training Changes Coming

Changes to harassment prevention training laws


This year, California Governor Jerry Brown was given more bills to sign (or veto) than any California governor since 2004. Among them are many that affect employers in the state.

Quite a few of the bills are related to sexual harassment. One of these, SB 1343, makes changes to the mandatory requirements for harassment prevention training.

SB 1343, starting January 1, 2020, requires an employer of five or more employees, including seasonal and temporary employees, to provide sexual harassment training. Currently, employers with fewer than 50 employees are exempt from the training requirements. Within six months of their assuming their position (and once every two years thereafter), all supervisors must receive at least two hours of training, and all non-supervisory employees must receive at least one hour. Adding non-supervisory personnel to the training is also new.

SB 1343 also requires the DFEH to make available a one-hour and a two-hour online training course employers may use and to make the training videos, existing informational posters, fact sheets, and online training courses available in multiple languages. Amends sections 12950 and 12950.1 of the Government Code.

Rest assured that HRSPI will have you covered with updates to our Harassment Prevention Training programs so that you will be able to easily comply with AB 1825 and SB 1343.
