Neil Bassetti Farms and JV Smith Take Advantage of WG SB 1343 Training

Last week, Western Growers’ HR Learning and Development Manager Anna Bilderbach conducted a SB 1343 training session for WG members Neil Bassetti Farms and JV Smith Companies.  Topics of the training included sexual harassment prevention and strategies on how to maintain a compliant workplace.

As previously reported in Spotlight, SB 1343 requires that California employers with at least five employees must provide sexual harassment prevention training and education to all supervisory employees and non-supervisory employees in California by January 1, 2020.

Western Growers is continuing its dedication and passion to helping organizations meet the needs and requirements of this new directive by offering robust Harassment Prevention training (SB-1343A, B-1825, and AB-2053) that engages both supervisors and employees.

The trainings will be available in both English and Spanish and offered at multiple locations, including the following:

  • Salinas – August 15, 2019
  • Irvine – September 11, 2019
  • Imperial – October 17, 2019

  • Modesto – November 12, 2019
  • Santa Maria – November 19, 2019
  • Bakersfield – November 25, 2019
