SB-1343 requires employers, with five or more employees, to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training and education to all employees who have supervisory responsibilities; and at least one hour for all employees that do not have supervisory responsibilities in California, with sexual harassment training, which must be completed by January 1, 2020. 

As part of our continued commitment to you, Western Growers University will be offering public sessions across multiple locations to help ensure that your company is compliant. Covering a wide source of harassment prevention material, our public sessions are open to anyone who functions in a supervisory capacity or is responsible for maintaining a compliant workplace. Sign-up at one of our multiple locations today.

HDA Conduct Prevention Training in California
Harassment, discrimination, and abusive conduct (HDA) are not issues that should be taken lightly. It is imperative that all employees with supervisory functions know and understand the law and how these types of behaviors impact the workplace. This course discusses the important elements of carefully and correctly handling harassment issues and complaints. We will review the legal definitions of sexual harassment, employment discrimination and abusive conduct. Participants will learn how to appropriately handle harassment complaints, discuss the negative impact of these conducts in the workplace and management’s legal obligations when it comes to dealing with these issues. Using case studies and group discussions, this AB-1825, AB-2053, and SB-1343 compliant workshop explores the consequences of harassment, discrimination, and abusive conduct on the individual and the organization.

Who Should Attend?
California state law mandates that employees who perform supervisory functions in a company with 5 or more employees participate in harassment, discrimination, and abusive conduct prevention training within six (6) months of taking the position and every two (2) years thereafter. Even if you don’t have 5 employees or do business in California, training is important. Every company needs those that are in supervisory functions who know the law.
