CALIFORNIA EMPLOYERS — Be Sure To Reset The Clock On Employee Sexual Harassment Training

This past fall, California enacted  Senate Bill 1343,  a law that greatly expands the sexual harassment training requirements (AB 1825 training requirements) in California.

As we previously reported (in”NEW LAW: New Sexual Harassment Training Requirements For California Employers“), this law requires California employers with five or more employees provide sexual harassment training to both non-supervisory and supervisory employees (including all temporary and/or seasonal employees) as follows:

  • Existing Non-supervisory Employees: At least 1 hour of sexual harassment training by January 1, 2020.  Thereafter, sexual harassment training must be provided once every two years.
  • Non-supervisory Employees hired after January 1, 2020: At least 1 hour of sexual harassment training within 6 months of the employee’s hire date.  Thereafter, sexual harassment training must be provided once every two years.
  • Temporary or Seasonal Employees: At least 1 hour of sexual harassment training within 30 calendar days after the hire date or within 100 hours worked if the employee will work for less than six months.
    • NOTE: If the employee is employed by a temporary services employer, the training must be provided by the temporary services employer, not the client.
  • Existing Supervisory Employees: At least two hours of sexual harassment training must be provided by January 1, 2020.  Thereafter, sexual harassment training must be provided once every two years.
  • Supervisory Employees hired after January 1, 2020: At least 2 hours of sexual harassment training within 6 months of the employee’s hire date.  Thereafter, sexual harassment training must be provided once every two years.
