CA: New Harassment Training Requirements

The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has released updated guidance on California’s expanded legislation requiring employers with five or more employees to provide sexual harassment and abusive conduct training for supervisors and non-managerial employees.

JD Supra explains that:

Managers and supervisors must receive two hours of training. Non-managerial employees, which includes temporary, seasonal, and any employee hired to work for less than six months, must receive one hour of training.

The guidance includes clarification on required training content, details on timing for completion, and specifications on re-training.

Employers should note that all employees must be trained in 2019 even if they received training in 2018.
