Anti-Harassment & Discrimination Training

Since January 2006, California employers with 50 or more employees, or contractors, have been required by law to train their supervisors on preventing harassment in the workplace. Harassment in this context includes sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. The law sets specific guidelines for employers to follow including who can train, what should be included in the training, the frequency of the training, how the training can be presented and maintaining training records.

In 2019 the law was expanded to require employers with five (5) or more employees or contractors to train said employees or contractors on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace. JHRS's training for supervisors and employees is tailored to your industry and is presented face-to-face. JHRS also tracks and maintains the records of completion on your behalf.
