2018 Legally Required Harassment Prevention Training - Long Beach
Long Beach Marriott
4700 Airport Plaza Drive
Long Beach, CA 90815
In the wake of many recent high profile sexual harassment and bullying claims there is no doubt that employees, attorneys, government agencies, and the press will continue to focus their attention on these important issues. Harassment and bullying can quickly go viral and cause devastating results both inside and outside of the workplace. You may have the right policies in place, but now is the time to revisit training and assess your organization’s culture to ensure that you are providing not only a workplace free of harassment, but also one that encourages and demands respect and inclusion.
In addition to being a legal risk to your organization, harassment also lowers morale, decreases productivity, and can cost you good employees. Join us to learn how to identify harassment, what to do when faced with allegations and practical solutions aimed at keeping your company out of the courts and out of the news.
Anti-harassment training for supervisors is required by law. AB 1825 requires that all California employers with 50 or more employees provide at least two hours of anti-harassment training. The recent passage of SB 396 makes California the first state to require that harassment training cover gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. This workshop is a cost-effective way to provide this mandatory training to supervisors. The training is interactive and practical, teaching supervisors essential management skills while discussing the legally required harassment related topics. Classes will be taught by Fisher Phillips attorneys have experience in this area of the law and are well known for their practical and engaging training programs.
Who is required to attend:
- Supervisors – every two years
- New Supervisors – within 6 months of promotion
- Anyone who hires, fires, disciplines, and/or directs the work of one or more employees.
