California Extends Compliance Deadline for New Harassment Training Requirements from January 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021

 

California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed SB 778, which took effect immediately, and both clarifies certain aspects of and extends the initial compliance deadline for California’s new harassment training requirements enacted in 2018.  Specifically, this new law extends from January 1, 2020 to January 1, 2021 the deadline for most employers to train supervisors who were not already subject to so-called AB 1825 harassment training, and for most employers to provide harassment training to nonsupervisory employees.  


This extension also means supervisors trained in 2018 will not need to be retrained in 2019, as they arguably would have been under the initial January 1, 2020 deadline.  Further, it clarifies that moving forwards, the prior two-year training timeframe will apply for  both supervisory and nonsupervisory employees, meaning any employees trained in 2019 notwithstanding this one year extension will also not need to be retrained until 2021, and then will only be need to be trained every two years thereafter.
