Employees Who Complete the Sexual Harassment Training in 2019 Do Not Have to Repeat It Until 2021
Under a new law enacted on Aug. 30, 2019, California employers with five or more employees now have until Jan. 1, 2021, rather than Jan. 1, 2020, to comply with new sexual harassment prevention training requirements.
These requirements, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 2019, were enacted as part of a series of changes made in Sept. 2018. Under those changes, employers must provide supervisors with at least two hours of training, and all other employees with at least one hour of training, every two years.
While the original deadline was Jan. 1, 2020, the new law gives employers another year to provide the initial training. It also clarifies that employees who receive the training in 2019 do not have to complete it again until after Jan. 1, 2021.
California employers with five or more employees should review the training requirements and ensure that each of their employees receives the required training by the end of 2020 and again every two years thereafter.
