How to comply with California’s sexual harassment training laws and regulations
Training can be provided in person or online, and must be provided by trainers or educators with knowledge and expertise in the prevention of harassment, discrimination and retaliation.
Examples of topics that California’s sexual harassment prevention training must cover but is not limited to:
- The definition of sexual harassment under state and federal law
- The types of conduct that constitute sexual harassment
- The remedies available to victims of sexual harassment
- Strategies to prevent sexual harassment
- The role of supervisors in the prevention, correction, and reporting of sexual harassment
Employers must also provide a copy of their sexual harassment policy to all employees, and post a poster about sexual harassment in a prominent place.
These requirements are outlined in the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and in California Code of Regulations, Title 2, Section 11024.
This is not intended as nor should be relied upon as legal advice, and we recommend all customers review their organization’s specific compliance requirements with dedicated legal counsel.
