Are You Ready? New Senate Bill Mandates Harassment Training to All Companies Over 5 Employees

02.25.19

Send employees to an in-person, interactive training at one of BPM’s many offices around the Bay Area or hold the training at your office.

Effective January 1, 2019 – Senate Bill 1343 under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act – requires employers with five or more employees to provide not only two hours of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to California supervisors but also at least one hour of such training to all nonsupervisory employees, and once every two years thereafter. The new law applies to all California employers (with five or more employees) regardless of where the employees reside, and whether they are seasonal, temporary and/or contract hires. Additionally, employees who were trained in 2018 or before will need to be retrained again in 2019.

The deadline to comply with the training requirements is January 1, 2020.
