News Regarding Sexual Harassment Training Deadline

Important Update Below


As you know, on January 1, 2019 a new law, SB 1343 (Sexual Harassment Training) went into effect that required employers with 5 or more employees to provide Sexual Harassment training to all employees by January 1, 2020 and once every two years thereafter.  

On August 15, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Bill SB 778, which extends the deadline to complete this training to January 1, 2021 and thereafter once every 2 years. Employers are still required to train new nonsupervisory employees within 6 months of hire, and new supervisory employees within 6 months of the assumption of a supervisory position. The bill also specifies that an employer who has provided this training and education in 2019 is not required to provide it again for another 2 years.

Seasonal and temporary workers must receive training with 30 calendar days or within 100 hours worked, whichever is first.

What does this mean for you?

The deadline to have all managers and employees trained has been extended for one year.
