Regulation Changes for Sexual Harassment Prevention for Managers in California
Teresa Townsend - 1/1/2015
Effective January 1, 2015, a new law, AB 2053 will amend the training commonly referred to as “AB 1825”. This amendment now requires employers who provide sexual harassment training to also provide “abusive conduct” prevention training. The relevant sections state:
- An employer shall also include prevention of abusive conduct as a component of the training and education specified in subdivision (a)
- For purposes of this section, “abusive conduct” means conduct of an employer or employee in the workplace, with malice, that a reasonable person would find hostile, offensive, and unrelated to an employer’s legitimate business interests. Abusive conduct may include repeated infliction of verbal abuse, such as the use of derogatory remarks, insults, and epithets, verbal or physical conduct that a reasonable person would find threatening, intimidating, or humiliating, or the gratuitous sabotage or undermining of a person’s work performance. A single act shall not constitute abusive conduct, unless especially severe and egregious.
SafetySkills has updated their online training course, Sexual Harassment Prevention for Managers in California to reflect these changes by adding two additional frames that cover abusive conduct. The first frame discusses the definition of abusive conduct and why and how supervisors should try to prevent it. The second frame walks the learner through examples of abusive conduct in the workplace to provide real-life examples and help ensure comprehension.
