At Duggan Law Corporation, we provide training services to Northern California employers so that they can comply with state law requirements. The focus is to provide sexual harassment training to supervisors every two years for employers with more than 50 employees or contractors. As we discussed earlier this year, a new 2018 requirement requires this supervisor training to include issues related to gender expression, gender identity and sexual harassment.
The #MeToo movement has brought a heightened awareness to the prevalence of sexual harassment. In California, larger employers are legally responsible for providing sexual harassment prevention training to supervisors. As of January 1, 2018, California law expanded this training to include gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.
