California state law mandates state-wide sexual harassment training for all private employers with 5 or more employees (including full-time, part-time and temporary employees and contractors).

There is no requirement that all 50 employees or contractors work at the same location or work in California. Training is also required by all public employers regardless of the number of employees.

When must training be provided?

Supervisors must receive two hours of training every two years. New supervisors must receive training within six months of assuming their supervisor position.


What topics must be included in the training?

Generally, the training must encompass federal and California law definitions of sexual harassment, and principles concerning the prohibition and strategies for the prevention of unlawful sexual harassment.

The training must also address the remedies available to victims of sexual harassment, and must include practical examples illustrating sexual harassment. New for 2015 – the training must include “Abusive Conduct”.


How long should the training session last?

No less than two hours.
