Topic Background:

Sexual harassment and the liability employers suffer from allegations of sexual harassment are no laughing matter. But that doesn’t mean that a sexual harassment prevention course must be dry, cold or clinical. In fact, boring and admonishing sexual harassment courses tend to invite mockery and disdain from their audiences. Worse, participants in that sort of course don’t seem to give credence to the information presented.

Pursuant to California’s AB 1825, employers with 50 or more employees must provide at least two hours of effective interactive training regarding sexual harassment and the prevention of abusive conduct to all supervisory employees, and to all new supervisory employees within six months of assuming a supervisory position. Thereafter, covered employers must provide sexual harassment training to each supervisory employee once every two years.

While not required by AB 1825 to provide the sexual harassment prevention training to its supervisors, small business owners and their supervisors will benefit from this course since the anti-harassment provisions of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act apply to employers with five or more employees. In other words, small business employers can still be held liable for sexual harassment even though they aren’t required to provide a course on sexual harassment prevention.
