Free Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Sexual harassment prevention training for all employees deadline extended to Jan. 1, 2021

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill extending the deadline for sexual harassment prevention training. Under SB 778, employers with five or more employees now have until no later than Jan. 1, 2021 to complete the mandatory one-or two-hour trainings for employees to be compliant. Employees are required to complete the training within six months of hire or promotion and every two years after.

With the extension, employers who trained their employees in 2018 can provide subsequent training in 2020 while still complying with the deadline. Additionally, employers who train their employees in 2019 are not required to provide more training until 2021 and every two years thereafter.

In order for employers of 5 or more employees to comply with training obligations, The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing provides free online training courses on preventing sexual harassment and abusive conduct in the workplace.

The department has provided training for both supervisory (2-hour) and nonsupervisory (1-hour) positions.
