This course is mandatory for managers and supervisors in companies having 50 or 15 or more employees. In California, it has now changed to five (5), or more and other states will follow. The definition of employee has been greatly enlarged to include contractors, part-time workers, and some others. Training of supervisors and managers is required at least every two years.
Thus, it is strongly recommended that you provide training to all employees at least annually, no matter how many you consider your headcount. It only takes two people to have a behavior reported as either sexual harassment, bullying, or discrimination.
