FAQs About California's Expanded Harassment Prevention Training

Required Harassment Prevention Training FAQs

Effective January 1, 2019, California made a substantial change to mandatory sexual harassment prevention training. Now employers with five or more employees must provide this training to all supervisors and employees by January 1, 2021.

In addition to supervisors receiving two hours of sexual harassment prevention training, nonsupervisory employees must receive one hour of sexual harassment prevention training. Training must take place within six months of hire or promotion and every two years thereafter.

After holding our 2019 Employment Law Updates seminars up and down the state in January, our attendees showed us there are still many unanswered questions about complying with the new training requirements.
