Preventing Sexual Harassment for Supervisors
California law AB1825 (Government Code Section 12950.1) requires that all new supervisors of employers with 50 or more employees attend training in sexual harassment prevention within 6 months of hire or promotion, and all current supervisors attend training every two years for at least two hours. AB 2053 now requires that we incorporate “Abusive Conduct” or bullying as part of the mandatory topics. It will also include the new revisions under SB 396 which require that as of January 1, 2018 the training include gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.
