California Harassment Training - Non-Supervisor - Assembly Bill 1825 requires employers with five or more employees to provide practical guidance about the federal and state laws concerning the prohibition, prevention, and correction of sexual harassment. This includes harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, the remedies available to people who experience sexual harassment, and training on the prevention of abusive conduct. The training must also include practical examples aimed at instructing supervisors in the prevention of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
Employers must provide:
• At least one hour of classroom or other effective interactive training and education regarding sexual harassment to all non-supervisory employees
• "Refresher training” every two years thereafter
• The applicable training within six months of hire for new employees or within six months of entering a supervisory position.
Employers who provide training that complies with the law in 2020 do not need to do so again until two years have passed from the date of training. For instance, if you trained all employees on July 14, 2020 (good work!), you would have until July 14, 2022, to retrain those same employees.
