News out of San Francisco, California this morning may bode well for the rest of the nation. The law AB 1825, passed by the California state legislature in 2004, became effective this morning on August 17, 2007.
The law requires all California supervisors to complete two hours of sexual harassment prevention training every two years. The Web-based training is now considered official; several years ago, however, laws in place did not specify whether or not training done online counted as compliant.
Online sexual harassment training makes it easier for both small and large businesses to comply with all regulations set forth by the state of California, and will hopefully decrease incidents of California sexual harassment in the years to come.
