AB 1825 Sexual Harassment Training
THE TIME OF THE NOVEMBER 7 WEBINAR HAS CHANGED. IT WILL BE HELD FROM 1:00-3:00 P.M. PACIFIC. PLEASE IGNORE THE TIME LISTED ABOVE.
On January 1, 2005, AB 1825 required that all California employers with 50 or more employees or contractors provide at least two (2) hours of interactive sexual harassment training to all supervisory employees. It also mandates that these trainings occur every other year.
If you completed your AB 1825 training last year, the law still requires that all new managers be trained within six months of hire or promotion. Take this opportunity to send any managers and supervisors who have not yet fulfilled their AB 1825 requirement.
Videos, CD-Roms, or pre-recorded Internet programs will not suffice. A “supervisor” is any individual having the authority “to hire, transfer, suspend, layoff, recall, promote, discharge, assign, reward, or discipline other employees …” Managing an assistant, for example, may be enough to be a supervisor.
We have been conducting supervisory training classes for more than 15 years and continue to offer training that will keep your company in compliance with AB 1825. This class will deliver this crucial information in a practical, straightforward, interactive, and interesting format.
