DFEH Announces New Online Harassment Training Resources For Employers Featured

  11 December 2018

SB 1343, in effect as January 1, 2019, expands the required AB 1825 harassment training to cover employers with five (5) or more employees (as opposed to employers with 50 or more employers), to include all nonsupervisory employees.

Specifically, the new law requires nonsupervisory employees of covered employers to receive one hour of harassment training, every two years, in addition to the two hours of training required for supervisory personnel. This training must be completed by January 1, 2020. The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) announced a new online resources page for employers, which includes information on required postings and other tools for addressing California’s discrimination and harassment laws.  Also included is a “Sexual Harassment Prevention Training and SB 1343 FAQ” to assist with SB 1343 compliance. For more information, read here.
