Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Required for 2015

Bowles Firm is Scheduling On-Site Seminars for October and November

California businesses hiring a total of 50 or more workers, including employees, temps and independent contractors, must provide a minimum of two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisory employees every two years. 2015 is such a year. With completion required by January 1, 2016, 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, including new abusive conduct (anti-bullying) training.

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 on-site seminar includes:

1. A live lecture with printed materials

2. PowerPoint presentation

3. Video demonstrations of unlawful conduct

4. 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:

A. What constitutes unlawful harassment under current federal and California law;

B. The major types of sexual harassment, including the circumstances that will render supervisors personally liable for their actions;

C. The steps all supervisors should take to prevent company liability, including possible punitive damages;

D. The workplace policies an employer can impose to place reasonable limits on romantic relationships between employees; and

E. The major do’s and don’ts in fielding a sexual harassment complaint

The firm is offering reasonably priced on-site seminars for Southern California employers at your place of business. For more information, please email or call Mary Cinquegrani at 626-583-6600.
