Sexual Harassment Training

Under SB 778, an employer with five or more employees must provide at least two hours of training and education regarding sexual harassment to all supervisory employees and at least one hour of traning to all nonsupervisory employees by January 1, 2021. Thereafter, the training must be given again once every two years. SB 778 also requires the training to be provided within six months of hire or within six months of the assumption of a supervisory position. SB 778 clarifies that employees who are trained in 2019 do not need to be trained again until two years have passed (sometime in 2021, after the January 1, 2021 deadline).

In 2018, the California legislature passed SB 1343 expanding the requirement for who has to be trained on sexual harassment issues, largely in response to the #MeToo movement. The law requires employers with five or more employees to provide harassment prevention training to all employees. Supervisors must receive 2 hours of training every two years or within 6 months of their assumption of a supervisory position. Non-supervisory staff must participate in the 1-hour course every two years.  

SB 778 moved the required completion date for non-supervisory training to January 1, 2021. Supervisors are still required to be trained within 6 months of hire and every two years thereafter.
