There are various ideas you may incorporate to reduce the level of sexual harassment in the workplace. Each idea applies differently depending on the type of situation you are in. If you are an employer, focus on creating a harassment-free workplace by following these helpful tips:
In California, it is required for employers with at least 50 employees to give supervisors two hours of sexual harassment prevention training within six months of being hired and every two years thereafter.
Currently, the threshold amount of employees that have coverage under the law has been reduced to five, thus resulting in non-supervisory employees being included in the trainings, as well.
Basically, employers with at least five employees are required to provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training with all supervisory employees. They may also offer a one hour sexual harassment prevention training for all non-supervisory employees. Part-time, temporary, and independent contractors all fall under the 5 employee minimum requirement.
The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) can make training available for supervisors and non-supervisors. For temporary or seasonal employees that have worked less than six months, it is expected for them to participate in the trainings within 30 calendar days after being hired or within 100 hours of first working, whichever comes first.
If a temporary employee is employed by a temporary services employer to provide services for clients, then the training must be given by the temporary service employer rather than the client.
