California Delays Mandatory Harassment Training Requirement for Small Employers

by D. Gregory Valenza | |

The California Legislature passed SB 778 (here).  This bill amends Government Code section 12950.1, which is California’s anti-harassment training statute.  Last year, the Legislature expanded the training requirements to non-supervisors, and to smaller employers.  You can refresh your memories here.  Essentially, all employers of 5 or more employees must train supervisors and non-supervisors.  However, by passing SB 778, the Legislature has now revised the timeline for implementing new training for non-supervisors, and new training for smaller employers of under 50 employees.  For smaller employers of under 50 employees, this is an entirely new obligation.  For all employers, though, training non-supervisors may be new.  Fortunately, now there is extra time to make arrangements and budget the time and resources needed to get compliant.  Double-fortunately, any employer who already has conducted training in 2019 has two full years to repeat the training, and need not do so again before January 1, 2021.
