All Employers and All Employees – All employers are required to take reasonable steps to prevent harassment in the workplace and harassment prevention training for all employees is recommended for all employers to establish compliance with this legal requirement.
Mandated Supervisor Training – Businesses with 50 or more employees must meet additional requirements with regard to the scheduling and type of training provided to supervisors. These businesses are legally required to provide all supervisors with at least two hours of harassment prevention training every two years and all new and newly promoted supervisors must receive this training within six months of hire or promotion. This training must also meet specific legal requirements and be provided by qualified instructors.
Abusive Conduct Prevention Training Starting in 2015 – In addition to the specifically mandated training certain supervisors are required to receive with regard to sexual harassment prevention, training on the prevention of “abusive conduct” must be provided starting in 2015. For purposes of this law (AB 2053), abusive conduct includes conduct that a reasonable person would find to be “hostile, offensive and unrelated to an employer’s legitimate business interests.” 2015 is a training year for many employers and training to prevent abusive conduct in the workplace must now be provided.
We offer a variety of affordable training options.
On-Site Training – Many employers may wish to continue to take advantage of our highly praised on-site training where our attorneys come to you. Here’s a sample of the reviews we have received on this training:
“You have developed some raving fans after your Sexual Harassment Prevention Training seminar this morning. I can’t even begin to tell you what a tremendous presentation it was. Others have stopped by all morning to tell me how impressed they were… you did a fantastic job of explaining the history and reasons for the various laws in a very informative way… your stories and personal experiences were a tremendous help in putting it into perspective and applying it to everyday situations… I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done.”
Cary Mathis, Vice President/CFO, King Schools
We charge a single flat affordable fee for this training – and because there are no per person charges, we encourage employers to have all employees attend this training. Harassment in the workplace is a serious concern for all employers, and providing training to all employees can help establish that all reasonable steps were taken to prevent it.
