Mandatory Harassment Prevention Training

  • A new law that took effect on January 1, 2019, requires virtually all California employers to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees. Specifically, by January 1, 2020, employers with five or more employees must provide one hour of sexual harassment prevention training to nonsupervisory employees and two hours of such training to supervisors.1 In order to comply with the January 1, 2020 deadline, all employees must be trained during the calendar year 2019.2 Employees who were trained in 2018 or before will need to be retrained.3 ​This new requirement reflects an expansion of the prior harassment training law that’s been in place for over a decade, which requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisors in California.​
