AB 1825 requires that by January 1, 2020, all California employers with five or more employees must provide at least two hours of anti-harassment training to those in supervisory roles. Newly expanded harassment-training requirements mean employees must be trained during the 2019 calendar year. Employees who were trained in 2018 or before will need to be retrained.

This training is interactive and practical, teaching supervisors essential management skills while discussing the legally required harassment related topics.

The seminar will cover:
• Explanation of protected categories
• Address SB 396 requirements
• Types of harassment and bullying
• Responsibility of supervisors and companies
• How to conduct an investigation
• Best practices

Additionally there will be a “Train the Trainer” Session for qualified individuals.
This session is designed for human resources professionals who are experienced in the area of sexual harassment training and investigations, to learn how to conduct the training at their company.

Who is eligible to attend train the trainer?

• HR Professionals with two years’ experience handling claims of sexual harassment
• Trainers specializing in sexual harassment prevention
• Attorneys that specialize in labor law
• University professors that teach labor law

Class participants will receive an overview of requirements of the law and what must be covered in each session. They will then go through a presentation that details how to teach the class and discuss the required topics. They will receive the following digital materials which they can customize for their company sessions:

• Train the trainer talking points
• Model PowerPoint for training class
• Sign-in sheet
• Certificate of attendance
• Master harassment policy
