What can employers do?

We offer a Variety of harassment prevention training options to fit your needs

1 hour course

To maintain compliance with California’s new and expanded sexual harassment prevention laws, SDEA offers a one-hour harassment prevention training course for non-supervisory employees. Under the new law effective January 1, 2019, all non-supervisory employees must receive one hour of harassment prevention training every other year.  This course is open to all levels of employees but is geared towards non-supervisory employees. We cover the broad concepts and legal issues related to harassment, distinguish the differences between intent and impact, review the many protected classes in California employment matters, identify and provide examples of the different types of unlawful harassment and discuss responsibilities for preventing harassment in the workplace.  SDEA’s trainers are energetic, funny, and interactive, making our training an enjoyable as well as informational learning experience.

2 hour course

The two-hour course is required training for all supervisory and management employees. SDEA’s training covers both required and recommended topics related to AB1825, specifically sexual harassment, hostile work environment, retaliation, bullying and more in an informative and interactive way. Our trainers also include pertinent elements of the #MeToo movement, impacts of “bad behaviors” on an organization, initial receipt of a claim by a supervisor, duty for a good-faith investigation, bystander actions and follow up for resolution and non-retaliation.

Harassment Prevention Training Webinar

We also offer our Harassment Training Programs in a convenient 1-hour or 2-hour webinar format. Webinars are offered regularly throughout the year, and may also be scheduled specifically for your company at a time that is best for you. Topics covered in the Harassment Prevention Training Webinars are consistent with the materials outlined in the 1-hour and 2-hour in-person training courses.

Note: our Harassment Prevention Training Webinars must be pre-scheduled and are not available on-demand.
