|Sexual harassment not only causes a hostile work environment, but the United States Department of Labor estimates it costs organizations around $1 billion in damages each year.|
In 2017, the state of California passed a new Senate Bill (SB 396), which requires organizations with 50 or more employees to provide training on harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. This new law is an addition to AB 1825 that requires mandatory sexual harassment training for supervisors who work for companies with at least 50 employees.
As a result of SB 396, TargetSolutions updated its existing “Sexual Harassment Prevention for Supervisors (California’s AB 1825)” training course to ensure it contains the most recent changes. TargetSolutions’ two-hour course offers detailed lessons, engaging interactions, and real-life scenarios to educate personnel, achieve compliance, and create safer work environments.
As the new law requires, the updated content covers gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. The updated videos can be found in lesson 4 of TargetSolutions’ AB 1825 course.
