California Issues Sexual Harassment Training Regulations

HR Legal Update for January 6, 2006 - Distributed by HRN Management Group

California's new sexual harassment law regarding supervisor training for supervisors now has regulations to back it up. Here's the latest from HRN Management Group's HR Legal Update:

The law requires that any employer with 50 or more employees (anywhere) must provide sexual harassment training to supervisors every two years. Supervisors are defined to include anyone supervising an employee in California, whether or not that supervisor lives in California. Thus, if you are a covered employer with just one employee in California supervised by a manager in Utah, you must train that manager. The regulations explain how training must be conducted, how new businesses must comply, how soon new supervisors must be trained and who is qualified to provide the training. Employers of 50 or more persons with any employees in California must be in compliance with this law by December 31, 2005.
