Recent news headlines illuminate the alarming number of harassment cases emerging in companies across the globe today. Now more than ever, it is critical to provide Harassment Prevention Training to your employees, regardless of your company size. Harassment training is more than just the legal parameters; it is about creating a culture of respect in the workplace.
Recently passed SB 1343 amends the California Fair Employment and Housing Act by expanding both which employers must provide supervisor sexual harassment training and to whom they must provide it. Under current law, supervisors with 50 or more employees must provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training to supervisors every two years or within six months of an employee becoming a supervisor.
SB 1343 expands that mandate to employers with five or more employees. Covered employers must provide at least one hour of training to non-supervisory employees as well. Employers must complete this training by January 1, 2021.
SDEA offers this training as a two-hour session, which can be delivered in person or via webinar. Our Harassment Prevention Trainings are led by expert instructors, and are known to be engaging, interactive and even fun! SDEA’s Harassment Prevention Training defines what harassment is and is not, and helps attendees spot, address and remedy potential problems. The training also teaches participants how to respond effectively to harassment complaints and helps empower participants by providing information and tools so they can effectively address a harassment complaint, no matter what role they are in.
SDEA also offers a one-hour Harassment Prevention Training course for non-supervisory employees. This one-hour course is meant for any level of employee but is geared towards non-management level. This course addresses the differences between intent and impact; how to recognize and address bullying in the workplace and hostile work environment as well as personal liability. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the importance of reporting harassment. Harassment training should be a company-wide topic; not limited to supervisors and managers and those who the company is legally obligated to training. This one-hour training is delivered on-site at your company. To learn more and to schedule your training, contact us today!
