California has updated the laws surrounding sexual harassment training effective Jan. 1, 2021
As of January 1, 2021, the laws regarding sexual harassment training in the workplace have changed. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act protects employees from unlawful practices and harassment. Starting in 2005, the law required employers with 50 or more employees to provide at least 2 hours of training and education on the subject of sexual harassment and abusive conduct. This year, the requirement has been adjusted to apply to businesses with five or more employees.
