Preventing Sexual Harassment in California (AB 1825)

The Preventing Sexual Harassment in California library has been the go-to resources for many California organizations, and it is crucial to get your team trained on sexual harassment prevention.

California law mandates that supervisors receive two hours of training every two years on how to recognize and prevent sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. This course meets the requirements of CA Govt. Code Sec. 12950.1, including information and practical guidance regarding state and federal laws, how to prevent, respond to, and correct sexual harassment, remedies available to persons subject to harassment, and the potential for liability.

This library includes training to meet new guidelines for sexual orientation/gender identity training, compliance with AB1825, full coverage of AB2053 Abusive Conduct Law, interactive exercises and real-life scenarios and exercises, and so much more!

The BLR® TrainingToday California Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response training course provides California employers with everything you need to satisfy California regulation AB-1825, including a two-hour minimum course length, interactive content, expert “help link,” and employee policy acknowledgement.

Preventing Sexual Harassment in California: Training for Supervisors (AB 1825): This complete training program gives you everything you need to conduct training that’s authoritative, attention-grabbing, and best of all, helps you protect your organization against devastating lawsuits. Unlike other training programs, this course is:

  • Simple. For you and your staff. In just two hours, your team learns what constitutes harassment, why they need to stay vigilant, and how to react if they are approached with a complaint. And you’ll meet your training obligations under California law.
  • Engaging. Professional actors depict real scenarios from the workplace, not the unrealistic, wooden or even absurd vignettes used in other programs.
  • Authoritative. Each scenario is followed by frank and easily understood commentary from leading employment law authorities Mark Schickman and Linda Walton, each with over 20 years of experience counseling employers.
  • Convenient. Conduct training as it fits your organization’s schedule, not that of some busy consultant.

NOTE: The state of California has mandated harassment prevention training for supervisors. The U.S. Supreme Court has identified prevention training as an affirmative defense for employers facing sexual harassment claims. This library includes training to meet new guidelines for sexual orientation/gender identity training, compliance with AB1825, full coverage of AB2053 Abusive Conduct Law, and so much more!
