Cal/OSHA Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Employees

Online Training Certification Course

Senate Bill 1343 (SB 1343)

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Although prohibited by state and federal law, sexual harassment continues to be an issue in many workplaces. Proper preventative training can help decrease incidents of sexual harassment, and training on the correct actions to take when harassment occurs can help create a safer, more welcoming workplace. This online training course for non-supervisor employees presents an overview of sexual harassment in the workplace-what it looks like, which laws govern the protection of workers against sexual harassment, and how to deal with it should it occur.

This course is for:
State laws require most employees to undergo anti-sexual harassment training. The goal of this mandatory sexual harassment prevention training is to improve awareness and prevent sexual harassment incidents in the workplace. This online sexual harassment training meets this requirement.

Case Study: Robert Filner was a San Diego, California, mayor from December 2012 to August 2013. He resigned from his position after many women (including a Colorado congresswoman) came forward with sexual harassment allegations and filed a lawsuit. Filner asked the City of San Diego to pay for his legal fees; the city refused. In return, the city voted to sue Filner. Filner pleaded guilty to three criminal counts (one felony false imprisonment count and two misdemeanor battery charges) and faced up to five years in prison. He reached a plea deal and was given three months of house arrest, three years of probation, and loss of some of his mayoral pension.

Key Takeaway: This section uses the term "liability" often. Filner's case illustrates exactly what this may mean: lawyer fees that supervisors must take on themselves, and potential prison sentences if they are found guilty of their allegations.

Governing Regulations

While most worksite regulation is overseen by California's OSHA, the topic of sexual harassment is not. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act of 1959 (FEHA) is a California law regarding sexual harassment and other forms of unlawful discrimination in employment and housing. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is the state agency that enforces California's civil rights laws and protects citizens from discrimination related to areas such as housing and employment. This agency also enforces California Senate Bill 1343, which requires sexual harassment prevention training for businesses with five or more employees and extends to all employees, not just supervisors.
