AB 1825 Sex Harassment Trainer

A free resource for California employers about the sexual harassment training law (AB 1825).

Supervisors outside California


Jennifer writes:
    Our company (well over 50 employees) has a plant located in California. My question is: is it safe to assume that the specifics of this law apply only to training supervisors located inside California? In other words, are we required to train our supervisors in Pennsylvania, Oklahoma or in the international offices under the same requirements as well?
I reply:

Generally state laws (and enforcement agencies) only control what go on in their own (and not other) states. So, the training requirement of AB 1825 is likely to be applied only to supervisors who supervise employees working in California.

Note that I didn't say "supervisors in California," however, because my best guess is that an employer cannot escape the training mandate by having supervisors located out-of-state (or out-of-country). So, if someone directs California workers — no matter where they're located — they should be trained.

In other words, if an engineer in Bangalore is supervising coders in San Francisco, I believe that this supervisor must receive AB 1825 training because they supervise employees in California.

But, if a New York supervisor only directs non-California workers, AB 1825 wouldn't apply.

That's my interpretation. Of course, when (and if) the state puts out regulations, we may have a more definite answer.
