SEXUAL HARASSMENT & ABUSIVE CONDUCT PREVENTION TRAINING
Sexual harassment training is mandatory by law for all organizations, but the most important goal is to create a safe and harassment free environment for all employees. This training session will review what constitutes sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention in the workplace and develop the skills necessary for a positive and safe work environment. This training program is particularly importantin the case of a new supervisor from another country with a different cultural background and language, and needs training done in their prefered language.
TRAINING REQUIRED BY LAW
In August 2014 California’s governor signed AB 2053 into law. The new law requires employers to cover “abusive conduct” in their harassment prevention training, which is required under AB 1825.
Notably, AB 2053 requires training, but does not make abusive conduct itself unlawful.
The amendment did not formally add “abusive conduct” as a protected category under FEHA; rather, it amended only the training requirement.
But, even if bullying is not directed at an employee because of a protected characteristic, it is still possible for a bullied employee to pursue a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
