Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Thursday, September 15, 2022
9:30am to 11:30am

California law requires all employers with five or more employees to provide harassment prevention training to all employees by January 1, 2021, and then every two years.  This includes:

  • California supervisors (two hours) and nonsupervisory employees (one hour)
  • Out-of-state supervisors who manage California employees
  • Remote employees interacting with California employees
  • Newly hired or promoted employees (within six months)
  • (As of January 1, 2021) Seasonal and temp employees you hire directly to work for less than six months — within 30 calendar days after their hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first.
  • If you trained staff in 2020, they are due for refresher training in 2022.

Important note regarding California’s training threshold of five or more employees: When counting employees to determine if you’re required to provide harassment prevention training, be sure to count staff located outside of California, part-time and temporary direct hires, independent contractors, as well as unpaid interns and volunteers.
