By January 1, 2020, all California employers with five or more employees must provide at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to supervisors and at least one hour for non-supervisory employees as mandated by SB-1343. All employees must be trained in the 2019 calendar year to comply with the January 1, 2020, deadline — which means that all employees who trained in 2018 or before must retrain in 2019. After January 1, 2020, employers must provide sexual harassment training once every two years. Trainings must be paid and take place within six months of hire or promotion. Beginning January 1, 2020, seasonal and temporary employees, or any employee that is hired to work for less than six months, must receive training within 30 calendar days after the hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first.
