California state law mandates that employees who perform supervisory functions at a company with 50 or more employees take sexual harassment training.  The mandate first became effective August 17, 2007, resulting from the passage of AB 1825 and is part of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act.  Employees are required to take the training every two years.
