Is Sexual Harassment Happening At Your Workplace?

Passed in 2019, SB 778 extended the deadline for new sexual harassment prevention training requirements in California to Jan. 1, 2021. As we are now in the new year, the deadline for compliance has lapsed – this means you, your coworkers, and supervisors should have all received sexual harassment prevention training by now.

Under SB 778, all California employers with five or more employees must provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training to all supervisory employees and at least one hour of training to all other employees. These trainings must recur every two years, and employers have within six months after hiring or promotion to train new employees or supervisors.

Is Your Employer Taking Sexual Harassment Seriously?

If sexual harassment has been an ongoing problem at work and your employer isn’t taking it seriously, you can hold them liable by filing a lawsuit. Your employer should have intervened with meaningful action after you reported what happened and who was involved – especially if they were supervisors.

Under California’s new sexual harassment training law, all employees and supervisors were required to have received prevention training by Jan. 1, 2021 – your employer could be liable if it failed to provide training to those who engaged in sexually harassing behavior.
