WG Offers Three More Public Sessions Before Year’s End

Western Growers’ HR Learning and Development Manager Anna Bilderbach has been delivering both public and private Management 101: Introduction to Supervision and Harassment Prevention trainings to WG members throughout California.

As previously reported in Spotlight, Senate Bill (SB) 778 California requires employers with five or more employees to provide the following:

  • a minimum of 2 hours of training and education regarding sexual harassment to all supervisory employees
  • at least 1 hour of training and education regarding sexual harassment to all nonsupervisory employees in California within six months of their assumption of a position

SB 778 permits employers who have provided training to an employee in 2019 to offer a “refresher” training to that employee two years thereafter (rather than the January 2021 deadline). This will avoid forcing employers who have already provided compliant training from having to do so twice in a single two-year period.

Western Growers is offering its members supervisory training through both public and private sessions. Supervisors can participate in one of our upcoming Public Sessions:

  • Santa Maria: November 19th
  • Bakersfield: November 25th
  • Tulare: November 26th
