Some California employers now have until January 1, 2021 to train employees on sexual harassment prevention—a one-year extension of the original January 1, 2020 deadline.
The deadline was not extended for employers of seasonal and temporary employees, who are hired to work for less than six months. Starting January 1, 2020, these employees must be trained within 30 calendar days after their hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first.
Under the new law, SB 778, all employees — supervisory and nonsupervisory — must be trained by January 1, 2021.
Here is a quick breakdown for employers who’ve trained employees this year or in previous years.
