Sexual Harassment Training
and Education Webinar


Private Duty, Home Health, and Hospice



OVERVIEW

In September of this year the Governor signed into law SB 1343 which is yet another requirement that employers with 5 or more employees must comply with for sexual harassment training. The new law requires non-supervisory staff to receive by January 1, 2020 at least one hour of classroom or other effective interactive training and education which should also cover prevention of abusive conduct as well as the gender expression and sexual orientation components that were mandated under SB 396.

This webinar will provide home health, hospice and home care aide organizations with the necessary training to comply with California’s sexual harassment laws. SB 396 which became effective January 1, 2018, expanded the requirements for the current 2-hour training requirements for sexual harassment for employers with 50 or more employees and specifies that supervisory employees must receive additional training on sexual harassment in the areas of gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation. These topics must be incorporated into the current two-hour training that is mandatory within 6 months of assuming a supervisory position and at least once every two years. This informative webinar will provide supervisors the necessary opportunity to ask questions, to have them answered and otherwise to seek guidance and assistance. Don’t miss you chance to ensure your agency is compliant with the new mandatory harassment, discrimination and retaliation statues.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Understand important legal principals regarding harassment, discrimination and retaliation

  • Know how to handle a complaint from an employee regarding inappropriate workplace conduct

  • Be well-prepared to prevent harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the workplace
