Sexual harassment and discrimination are a constant presence in America’s workplaces. It can take a variety of forms, and with more media platforms available to employees, sexual harassment has never been more prevalent in the workplace. Coworkers and supervisors alike are connected through Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. They also commonly communicate through e-mails and text messages.
But when does a dirty joke or sexually explicit message become sexual harassment? How far can employees go before they commit unlawful acts? To prevent harassment, we need to understand it. This online course provides answers to these questions and more for California employees.
Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Training for Supervisors
Our Sexual Harassment and Discrimination course provides a comprehensive explanation of what sexual harassment is, how it can occur in the workplace, current legal positions and how management can maintain a harassment-free workplace. Some of the topics this course covers include:
- Recognizing behaviors that constitute sexual harassment.
- Identifying different types of harassment.
- Knowing what constitutes a hostile work environment.
- Handling complaints.
This course uses specific references to California laws regarding Sexual Harassment and Discrimination training.
Who Should Take This Course?
Sexual harassment affects an entire organization and the individuals involved. Emotional duress can decrease work performance, and taking a harassment course can help bring awareness to the issue and provide individuals with resources under those unfortunate circumstances.
All non-supervisory employees who work for a company with five or more employees must have Sexual Harassment training within 6 months of being hired. Others who should take this course include managers or supervisors in any industry in California and employees that want to be aware of their rights.
Harassment training is required by law in some states, while other states highly encourage employers to provide access to harassment training. States that have laws and statutes in place include California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine and New York.
Under California state law, all government agencies and businesses are required to provide workplace sexual harassment training for employees. All managers and supervisors in the California business sector need to take a sexual harassment and discrimination training course approved by the State of California. Additionally, all employers with California-based employees — in all industries — must comply with the specifications set forth by California state law.
Government Code 12950.1 states:
(a) As of January 1, 2020, an employer having five or more employees shall provide at least two hours of interactive education and training regarding sexual harassment to all supervisory or managerial employees and at least one hour of interactive training and education regarding sexual harassment to all nonsupervisory employees in California within six months of their assumption of a position.
An employer who has provided this training and education to an employee after January 1, 2019, is not required to provide training and education by the January 1, 2020, deadline. After January 1, 2020, each employer shall provide sexual harassment training and education to each employee in California once every two years.
What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?
This training course for sexual harassment and discrimination satisfies the State of California’s workplace laws. Specifically, our sexual harassment and discrimination training course fulfills the Employer Responsibilities outlined under California AB 1825. Harassment and discrimination training requirements mandate that no supervisor in California can go more than two years between training sessions.

The purpose of our course on dealing with sexual harassment and discrimination in the California workplace is to educate supervisors and managers on how to properly prevent, identify, handle and report cases of workplace sexual harassment and discrimination. This course is designed to teach professionals in managerial positions the correct protocols for educating their own employees as well as creating workplace policies to address the following:
- Sexual harassment in California workplace settings
- Gender harassment in California workplaces
- Discrimination and workplace harassment based on the following: pregnancy, breast-feeding, childbirth, related medical conditions
- Harassment based on the above and any other conditions outlined by the law
This course focuses on training managers and supervisors in the proper protocols to stop any sexual harassment or other harmful, discriminatory acts from occurring in their workplaces, as well as how to prevent these actions from taking place as much as possible. In addition, this course informs employers, managers and other supervisory personnel of the consequences of failing to follow harassment and discrimination protocol.
You will need a computer or iPad with internet access and an email account to complete this course. No text is required as all course materials are available online. The course will take approximately 2 hours to complete, and you can download the course if needed.
Level of Training
We offer sexual harassment and discrimination training at both the managerial or supervisory and employee levels. Employers of more than 50 workers in the state of California are required to complete two hours of federal harassment training requirements. California businesses with five or more employees based in California are required to provide this training for their personnel.
This course is designed to facilitate a safer, more peaceful workplace for your employees. Harassment can place people in emotional duress, which impedes their mental and physical health, productivity, morale and commitment. In addition, learning how to properly handle sexual harassment and discrimination issues at an employer or managerial level helps your company avoid lawsuits and other legal action for failure to address instances of such behavior.
Throughout this course, you will have access to interactive materials through video and audio, as well as written resources. You will need to view all the resources and take a cumulative exam. Passing this course requires completing the multiple-choice or true or false exam with a grade of 75% or better. If you do not receive a grade of at least 75% on the final quiz, you may retake the quiz up to a total of three times before you need to re-enroll.
Course Schedule and Deadlines
The course is designed to be self-paced and all the necessary materials are available online at any time. You will have 30 days to complete it and can come and go as you need. After one month, you will need to re-enroll to complete your course. Upon successful completion, you will immediately receive a PDF certificate.
Accreditation, Certification and CEUS
After completing this course, employers, managers and supervisors will receive an official certificate of completion for passing the required sexual harassment training. California businesses need to make sure that their testing service is state-accredited. Most will have this information on their websites.
