Orange County Sexual Harassment Training Law

–  One of the important California laws that has gone into effect on January 1, 2019, is the expansion of the sexual harassment training.  Inspired by the #MeToo movement, more employers are now required to provide sexual harassment training.  Senate Bill1343 expands the number and type of employees who must be subjected to sexual harassment training. Prior to January 1, 2019, only employers with 50 or more employees were required to give supervisors two hours of sexual harassment training every two years.

But under the new law, employers with five or more employees must provide two hours of training to supervisors and one hour to all other employees within six months of their hire (or promotion to supervisor) and every two years thereafter. Under this law, employers must complete this training by January 1, 2020.  The sexual harassment training must be provided to temporary and seasonal employees within their first 30 days or 100 hours, whichever comes first.  The training can be in person or online, but it must be interactive.

Prevention is the best solution.  If you require sexual harassment training for your company and employees, please feel free to contact Mazarei Law Group, Inc.
