According to SB-1343, by January 1, 2020, 92% of the state’s workforce [roughly 15.5 million workers] will need to have received at least one hour of sexual harassment training for non-management employees; and two hours of training for supervisors. Following the 2020 deadline, these educational thresholds will need to be met again every two years. Here are 7 things HR and compliance professionals need to know about this mandate.
What does SB-1343 change?
California's Property Service Workers Protection Act was enacted in July 2018. The law requires all janitorial employers to register with the Labor Commissioner's Office (starting July 1, 2018) and provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training every two years (starting January 1, 2019).
California employers will soon be required to update their employee training procedures once again with the newly-passed Senate Bill 1343 which requires both supervisory employees as well as non-supervisory employees to undergo comprehensive sexual harassment training every two years. The new mandate goes into effect January 1, 2020.
