Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP is pleased to offer our Learn, Lead, and Prevent: Anti-Harassment Training for Executives, Managers, and Supervisors seminar in Santa Monica on April 9, 2019 (Note this training is also available in San Francisco on April 12, 2019 and Napa on April 26, 2019.)
This…is…BIG: To kick-off 2019, California has raised the bar in aggressively addressing head-on the epidemic of workplace harassment – and Hirschfeld Kraemer has responded with significant updates to its standard-setting programs. During our highly interactive two-hour training, executives, managers, and supervisors will learn to fully understand the role they must play in creating a harassment-free workplace, and their responsibility to address issues and complaints that arise.
We have new content to share that incorporates the recently enacted SB 1300 changes to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, ensuring comprehensive compliance with mandatory training requirements. Human resources and organizational training executives take note that the new laws mandate that:
- All organizations with 5 or more employees must provide two hours of compliant training for supervisors and one hour for non-supervisors**; the training must be interactive, comprehensively addressing law, policy, and reporting protocols relating to sexual and other forms of harassment, bullying, and gender identity/expression and sexual orientation discrimination.
- Given the radical changes to the definition of “hostile environment” under the new law, this revised training must be conducted in 2019 to meet the January 1, 2020 deadline.
The June 2016 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Task Force Report on Sexual Harassment Prevention Training suggested that the most common form of training – delivered online, with a focus on liability and risk management – does very little to prevent gender-based abusive conduct. The results of the task force validated what the lawyers at Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP have known and practiced for over 20 years: that true prevention training must be delivered live in a highly interactive format that meaningfully challenges “business as usual” workplace stereotypes of gender and power. This supervisor program offers powerful lessons in leadership and response to address gender discrimination, sexual harassment and abusive conduct. After completing this course, managers will understand exactly what their role is in creating a respectful and harassment-free workplace and what to do if they either suspect a problem, or an employee comes to complain to them.
**In the coming months, Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP will roll out its live webinar solution for meeting the new one-hour training requirement for non-supervisors/individual contributors. More to follow!
