Is your harassment and discrimination prevention program compliant with California AB 1825 training requirements?
California AB 1825 was passed in 2004 and requires all California employers with 50 or more employees to provide sexual harassment training to their supervisors every two years. Employers must train full-time and part-time employees, contractors, and employees outside of California. Further, California statute AB 2053 now requires that your 2 hours of harassment training also cover bullying and “abusive conduct.”
California statute AB 1825 training requirements include providing 2 hours of interactive harassment and discrimination training, so putting up posters, handing out brochures and playing videos is not enough. Companies need to invest in quality, interactive AB 1825 training that engages employees and truly educates them on their responsibilities under the law. The real challenge for employers is finding a training solution that meets AB 1825’s strict statutory requirements and keeps learners engaged for two full hours. Dull training opens your organization to risk by causing supervisors to disengage from the material.
The Network’s two-hour course, “Discrimination & Harassment: Maintaining Respect,” provides a completely different training experience. Our contemporary, vector-animated style, with audio throughout the course, provides an engaging and memorable training experience that will make your harassment program more effective. The course can be cost effectively translated into multiple languages and fulfills AB 1825 training requirements, as well as the abusive conduct requirement under AB 2053.
However, simply fulfilling AB 1825 training requirements for training is only one part of a comprehensive training and awareness solution for creating a speak up culture and preventing discrimination and harassment in your organization.
