AB 1825 Sex Harassment Trainer

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

AB 1825 law modified

Friday, October 13, 2006

On September 29, 2006, the Governor signed AB 2095, which modifies the sexual harassment training statute (Government Code 12950.1) that was originally created by AB 1825.

Significantly, the new law changes the training mandate to specify that only supervisors physically in California need to be trained. It does this by adding the words "in California" after the term "supervisory employee" regarding the workers that employers need to have trained.

Previously, the proposed regulations (August 29 version) adopted this "only in California" rule. Now, regardless of the final regulations, it's the law.

Another revision of FEHC regulations

Monday, October 02, 2006
Today, the Fair Employment and Housing Commission issued the most recent version of its regulations for AB 1825 (download FEHC regulations 10-02-06).

The most significant revision is that the "training year" is back. So, if supervisors were trained in 2005, they can be retrained anytime in 2007. That should make it easier for employers to comply with the AB1825 regulations.

According to the FEHC site, "The Commission seeks public comment on these regulations until October 20, 2006." Thus, we're likely to have a (final) revision of the regs by the end of the month, which will likely be adopted at the Commission's next meeting on November 14, 2006.
