Important CalWorkSafety News Alert:

Effective Immediately

California employers with five or more employees are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees before January 1, 2020. The minimum count of 5 (five) employees includes seasonal and temporary hires as well as independent contractors.

Training must take place within six months of hire or promotion and every two years thereafter. Under the new law, beginning January 1, 2020, seasonal and temporary employees or employees hired to work less than 6 (six) months, must be trained within 30 calendar days after hire or within 100 hours worked, whichever is earlier.

To meet these requirements on a timely and regular basis, why not train your in-house Human Resources Professional to perform your 1-Hour Employee Harassment Training?

We provide a comprehensive Train the Trainer program for your Human Resources Professional. Your Human Resources Professional will be provided with in-depth training and all the tools and materials necessary to conduct your own 1-hour sexual harassment prevention training for your existing workforce as well as new-hires.

Our First Class Is Scheduled For:

  • Time: 9:00 am – 11:30 am

  • * ONLY 10 SEATS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS FIRST CLASS
  • Please RSVP as soon as possible

*NOTE: This course is intended for Human Resources Professionals who are “Qualified” to be trainers on this topic. In the State of California, a “Qualified” Human Resources Professional must have at least two years of practical experience: advising employers or employees about discrimination, retaliation, and sexual harassment prevention; responding to sexual harassment or other discrimination complaints; investigating sexual harassment complaints; or in designing or conducting training on discrimination, retaliation, and sexual harassment prevention.

Retainer clients may apply July “unused” hours towards the total amount of the class at their hourly rate. Depending on response, subsequent classes may be scheduled.

2019 Sexual Harassment Prevention

31 May
May-Train the Trainers
As an ongoing service to our clients, CalWorkSafety provides extensive training courses. Given the latest changes in California and federal sexual harassment laws, our goal is to ensure that you understand what these laws entail regarding employee training. IT ISN’T OPTIONAL.
The latest CA and federal sexual discrimination, harassment and retaliation laws have changed. Employers are now required  to “take reasonable steps to prevent and correct wrongful (harassing, discriminatory, retaliatory) behavior in the workplace.”
This means that all CA employers with 5+ employees are nowrequired to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training by the end of 2019, and every two years thereafter. This training must also be provided in a classroom setting, through interactive E-learning, or via live webinar.
Our trainers/educators are experts in harassment training based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, as well as practical examples of such harassment. CA employees must also be trained during calendar year 2019. Employees who were trained in 2018 or before must be retrained.

CA New Anti-Harassment Law Is No Joke

26 Nov
Nov3-Sex Harassment
What Employers Need to Know About California’s New Anti-Harassment Law
Training Employees Is Mandatory
On September 30, 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 1343 which expands the existing mandatory harassment prevention training obligations for employers. This new law requires that California employers provide harassment prevention training for all employees. Since you are a valued client, all our CalWorkSafety, LLC team wants to ensure that you have the relevant information.
  • Who: Any employer with five or more employees must train all employees (not just supervisors). The definition of “employee” now includes all seasonal and temporary employees.
  • Deadline: All relevant employees must be trained by January 1, 2020 (which means training needs to happen in 2019).
  • Frequency: Every two years.
  • Content: Required training topics were established in 2007 by AB 1825 and subsequent FEHA regulations. This is now augmented by another law enacted on September 30th, 2018 (SB 1300) which authorizes employers to include bystander intervention training but does not mandate it.
  • Duration: At least two hours of training for supervisors, at least one hour for all employees.
  • Record Retention: Again, as established by AB 1825 and FEHA regulations, employers are required to keep records of completed training including details of the attendees, training methods used, copies of questions asked, and responses given, etc.
CalWorkSafety, LLC has added several new video programs which provide you the training needed to comply with this law. Ask any of our team to discuss compliance options with you.
