California Specific Training

Since 2005, employers in the state of California have been required to comply with AB 1825, a bill which mandated that “all California employers with 50 or more employees must provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training (excluding breaks) to their supervisors and managers every two years.”

On January 1, 2015, amendment AB 2053 required all California employers subject to the mandatory training requirement under AB 1825 to include a component on preventing "abusive conduct."

On January 1, 2018, SB 396 expanded required training for supervisors to prevent sexual harassment to include gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.

In 2018, Senate Bill 1343 lowered the number of employees to five and included non-supervisors in the mandate. SB 1343 requires covered employers to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training and education to all supervisory employees and at least one hour of such training to all non-supervisory employees in California, by January 1, 2020. SB 778 later extended this deadline to January 1, 2021. Training and education must be provided once every two years thereafter, as specified under the new law.
