New California Anti-Harassment Law

 

SB 1343 amended the FEHA regulations and requires businesses with five or more employees to provide sexual-harassment-prevention training to all workers by Jan. 1, 2020, and every two years thereafter. SB 778 later extended this deadline to Jan. 1, 2021. In summary:​

  1. Anti-harassment training is required if you have 5 or more employees.
  2. Temporary, seasonal, part-time and casual employees count.
  3. One (1) hour of anti-harassment training is required every other year.
  4. Supervisors and managers must complete two (2) hours of training.
  5. Each employee must be trained within six (6) months of start date.
  6. Employees may file a complaint if training is not provided.
  7. Initial training must be completed by December 31, 2020.​
