2013 Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for California Businesses

Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Managers is required for 2013.  Attend the seminar on Wednesday, 24 July 2013 held at Jackie Robinson Community Center located in Pasadena, CA at 1020 N. Fair Oaks Ave.

California businesses employing 50 or more workers, including temps and independent contractors, must provide a minimum of two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisory employees every two years.  2013 is such a year. With completion required by January 1, 2014, the training must be interactive and cover all aspects of harassment awareness, prevention and resolution.  Our upcoming training seminars are updated on the current law and enable employers to comply with the legal requirements.

Employers who fail to comply before the end of the year will increase their risk of liability in the event of workplace harassment claims.  Of course, trained managers should be more capable of detecting and thus preventing or resolving problems before they spiral out of control.

Our seminar includes:

  • A live lecture with printed materials
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Video demonstrations of unlawful conduct
    • A session-ending investigatory scenario in which all participants can apply and demonstrate their knowledge of the fundamentals in this critical field

Seminar topics include:

  • What constitutes unlawful harassment under current federal and California law;
  • The major types of sexual harassment, including the circumstances that will render supervisors personally liable for their actions;
  • The steps all supervisors should take to prevent company liability, including possible punitive damages;
  • The workplace policies an employer can impose to place reasonable limits on romantic relationships between employees; and
  • The major do’s and don’ts in fielding a sexual harassment complaint

Our firm is offering two options for interested managers and human resources personnel.  Larger companies may choose an on-site seminar at your place of business.  There are still a few seats available for this seminar held at Jackie Robinson Community Center located at 1020 N. Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA 91103.

The cost is $65.00 per person, $175 for groups of three from the same company!  For more information, please email seminars@tbowleslaw.com or call 626-583-6600.
