Besides being legally required to take this course, there are a multitude of reasons to want to prevent sexual harassment in your workplace.
There are significant personal consequences for you and supervisors for engaging in sexual harassment or failing to fix it if it does happen:
- You could be Accused in an Investigation
- You could be Subject to Disciplinary Action
- Your Career could be Ruined
- You could be part of a Civil Lawsuit
- You could be Personally Liable
Moreover, there are detrimental consequences for the workplace:
- Morale Problems
- Tarnished Reputations
- Decreased Trust
- Reduced Productivity
- Increased Absenteeism
- Increased Workload
- Increased Turnover
- Increased Recruiting Costs
This course will help you avoid these common issues.
Why should you attend:
Pursuant to California's AB 1825, employers with 50 or more employees must provide at least two hours of effective interactive training regarding sexual harassment and the prevention of abusive conduct to all supervisory employees, and to all new supervisory employees within six months of assuming a supervisory position. Thereafter, covered employers must provide sexual harassment training to each supervisory employee once every two years. "You Said Whaaat?: Limiting Employer Liability for Sexual Harassment in the California Workplace" meets the requirements of AB 1825.
While not required by AB 1825 to provide the sexual harassment prevention training to its supervisors, small business owners and their supervisors will benefit from "You Said Whaaat?: Limiting Employer Liability for Sexual Harassment in the California Workplace" since the anti-harassment provisions of California's Fair Employment and Housing Act apply to employers with five or more employees. In other words, small business employers can still be held liable for sexual harassment even though they aren't required to provide a course on sexual harassment prevention.
