"SEXUAL HARASSMENT PREVENTION TRAINING: California's Mandatory Training for Supervisors" with Jonathan Fraser Light of LightGabler LLP


August 20, 2015



Program will also be presented in Spanish in adjoining room on the same date at the same location.

Do you have the answers to these questions?


  • Do you know when an employer is strictly liable for sexual harassment in the workplace?
  • What exactly is a hostile work environment?
  • Is breastfeeding protected?
  • When does an employee have any personal liability for harassment?
  • When are you required to investigate a complaint?
  • Have you ever heard of a "protected class"?
  • How can an all female workplace be at risk for a sexual harassment complaint?
  • What is the difference between a supervisor and someone in a "supervisory capacity"?


If not, or it's been almost 2 years since your last training, join us on August 20, 2015 for cost effective, entertaining, and informative training designed to help your company comply with California's strict laws.

Program Information:

California law mandates companies with 50 or more employees to provide their supervisors with at least two hours of interactive unlawful/sexual harassment prevention training to anyone in a supervisory capacity. The law requires these employees be trained every two years and new supervisors be trained within 6 months of starting their supervisory position.


The program will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to handle harassment complaints, conduct an investigation, understand legal requirements and definitions, ensure your policies contain the correct language, share war stories, and learn about the new bullying component.


Smaller companies are not mandated to provide training but are required to comply with all the same harassment laws. Accordingly, this program will benefit all owners and supervisors.


Attendees will receive a certificate of completion to put in their personnel files.
