Harassment Prevention Training

Compliance Alert: On August 30, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 778 into law which extends the training deadline from January 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021. While employers now have until the end of 2020 to train all employees, harassment prevention training is one of many best practices, and CalChamber recommends that employers train their employees now and not wait until the end of next year. Please note, that under the new law, if you already trained your supervisors and nonsupervisory employees in 2019, you won’t need to retrain them until 2021.

If you’d like to conduct your employee training anyway you can always take the online CalChamber training course.



FYI, the Department of Labor is preparing a free employee/employer course that should be ready by this December.
