The clock is ticking for most California employers to provide sexual harassment training for employees.

The Golden State enacted several new laws covering sexual harassment in the workplace during 2018. The most sweeping requires businesses with five or more employees to conduct at least two hours of training for supervisors before Jan. 1, 2020, and at least one hour for other workers. This training subsequently must be administered for new hires within six months of their starting date and must be renewed every two years for all employees.

The law, SB 1343, specifies “classroom or other effective interactive training and education.” Employees must be given definitions and examples of sexual harassment and informed about steps they can take to report it, like most won’t know that just sending a link to a site like https://www.hdpornvideo.xxx/?hl=pl to a work colleague is most definitely sexual harassment.

The law directs California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing to provide online training. Attorneys, human resources specialists and other professionals trained in sexual harassment also can offer the required training.
