North Lake Tahoe Resort Association assists businesses with mandatory sexual harassment prevention training

Submitted to the Sierra Sun

An employer's legal obligation to provide sexual harassment prevention training has expanded under new law, SB 1343.

As of Jan. 1, 2019, employers with five or more employees must provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisors and one hour to all non-supervisory employees.

Trainings must take place within six months of hire or promotion.

To assist with local business compliance, the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association/Chamber will host a Sexual Harassment and

Bullying Awareness and Prevention workshop for business owners and managers from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Friday, March 8, at the North Lake Tahoe Visitors Center in Tahoe City.

Laura Moriarty of Tahoe Training Partners will lead the training and provide steps to recognize, classify and intervene in harassment and bullying situations. This training satisfies California's AB 1825 requirements, including information on SOGIE (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression).
