New California Mandate: Workplace Harassment Training
If you haven't already heard, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 778 into law which requires California employers to provide expanded training to employees to prevent sexual harassment. According to SHRM, "employers with five or more employees must provide at least two hours of sexual-harassment-prevention training to supervisory employees and one hour of training to non-supervisory employees."
This training must be completed every 2 years. Also, employers have 6 months from the date of hire to provide this training to new employees and only 30 days to provide training to temporary workers, which means this should be added to your standard onboarding checklist. The deadline to complete the first round of training is this year which means now is the time to put it into process.
