California's training law requires that covered employers train employees, including supervisory employees, on sexual harassment issues every two years. Federal law provides employers with a defense to liability if they take proactive steps to prevent and correct sexual harassment and other forms of unlawful workplace harassment. A major element of this defense can be enhanced by training managers on how to prevent and correct workplace harassment.
Along with the prevention of sexual harassment and other forms of unlawful workplace harassment, California law requires that supervisory employees receive training on the prevention of abusive conduct as well as training addressing harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. In addition to complying with California requirements, Littler's program includes tools and strategies raised in the 2016 Task Force Report prepared by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): bystander intervention training, civility training and information on situational awareness that helps employers identify and respond to particular areas of risk that may exist in their workplace.
Littler Learning Group's highly engaging training program combines engaging content with interactive training strategies that equip supervisory employees with the tools they need to prevent, respond to and correct workplace harassment. Supervisors will learn about their obligation to prevent and correct abusive conduct, sexual harassment and other types of unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. The course requires at least two hours for completion covering two hours of material related to prevention of sexual harassment, as well as addressing harassment based on the other categories protected by federal and state law.
