Mandatory Harassment Prevention Training

Mandatory Harassment Prevention Training in California

Harassment is a major source of litigation in California. One of the best ways to avoid problems is by educating and training your entire workforce.

State law requires California companies with 50 or more employees to provide two hours of interactive harassment prevention training to all supervisors in California — within six months of hire or promotion, and every two years thereafter.

New amendments to California regulations make significant changes to employers’ compliance obligations, effective April 1, 2016.

CalChamber’s free white paper covers California’s original requirements plus the new amendments to mandatory supervisor training, including:

  • Which employers must comply with the law
  • Which employees must be trained and how often
  • How to track training to make sure you're in compliance
  • Required training content, including new requirements
  • New recordkeeping requirements
Additionally, CalChamber's employment law counsel created a checklist employers can use to help determine if a harassment prevention training course meets California’s compliance requirements.
