California requires all Employers with 50 or more employees to provide sexual harassment training to their supervisors/managers as part of regulations AB No. 1825 for several years. Effective, January 1, 2018, the sexual harassment training regulation has expanded to include specific transgender topics. This new regulation enhances the previous requirements. To be compliant with regulations, the Trainer must be qualified to conduct this training. Margie Faulk, PHR, SHRM-CP, Compliance Officer for HR Compliance Solutions, is qualified and certified to conduct this training. Have your supervisors/managers trained by a qualified compliance professional to meet your requirements! Unfortunately, recent media and political cases have put sexual harassment in the forefront of the workplace. If you thought sexual harassment and workplace violence was getting better, I am sure you were very disappointed. Additionally, some of the men in the workplace who were really concerned about the rise in sexual harassment accusations were also concerned that what they used to do or still do would now be used against them. Moreover, supportive men in the workplace were in fear of how these allegations would impact them in the future.

The state of California is one of the states with the strictest regulations on sexual harassment since 2006. At that time, AB 1825, CA 2053 and CA FEHA Training Requirements were instituted which obligates Employers (with 50 or more employees in California) to provide specific training for supervisors on sexual harassment and in fact, outlined the regulations, were guidelines about what the training should include, number of hours, number of times per year and the tracking of attendance of current supervisors and new supervisors within 6 months of hire or promotion.


Supreme Court decisions and the current EEOC Guidelines make it clear that employers need to go beyond simply having an anti-harassment policy. Employers must provide training to ensure every manager and employee understands the organization's harassment policy. Employers must show due diligence relative to controlling workplace harassment. Every employee should be trained on what harassment is, and what to do about harassment if they see it happening to them or anyone else.

Managers and supervisors must be aware of their liability and their responsibility to control harassment. They need to know how to prevent sexual, and other forms of workplace harassment, and what steps to take if harassment claims are made.

  • What a supervisor should do if accused of harassment
  • Essential elements of an anti-harassment policy including the supervisor's role in the complaint procedure (provide the supervisor with a copy of the company's harassment prevention policy and obtain acknowledgment that he or she has received and read the policy)
