ENGLISH – Employee Harassment, Discrimination & Retaliation

California law requires organizations with 5 or more employees (including contractors, on-call staff, and temporary employees) to provide harassment training by 1/1/2021 and thereafter:

SUPERVISORS – At least 2-hours of training
1. within 6-months of hire or promotion, and
2. every two years.

NON-SUPERVISORS – At least 1-hour of training
1. within 6-months of hire, and
2. every two years.

EMPLOYERS WITH 50 OR MORE EMPLOYEES In addition to training non-supervisory employees by the end of 2020, these employers are also covered under a law from 2015 (AB 1825) and must continue to provide supervisory employees at least 2-hours of harassment prevention training within 6-months of hire/promotion into a supervisory position, and every two-years thereafter.

TPO’s program goes beyond the topic of sexual harassment to address all forms of unlawful harassment and discrimination (age, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, etc.) in the workplace.

Our TPO Experts keep it relevant by including hypothetical situations, real-life examples, real-time discussions, reference materials, and signed acknowledgment for personnel files.
