What are the governing regulations?
This online course satisfies the training requirements for the Cal/OSHA Senate Bill 1343 (SB 1343) Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Who must take this training?
Mandatory sexual harassment prevention training has been a requirement in California since 2005, which is when Assembly Bill 1825 (signed by the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in 2004) went into effect. On January 1, 2019, another law went into effect that changed the parameters of sexual harassment prevention training. California Senate Bill 1343 (SB 1343) requires sexual harassment prevention training for businesses with five or more employees. It extends to all employees (full-time, part-time, and temporary employees or independent contractors), not just supervisors.

Case Study: Robert Filner was a San Diego, California, mayor from December 2012 to August 2013. He resigned from his position after many women (including a Colorado congresswoman) came forward with sexual harassment allegations and filed a lawsuit. Filner asked the City of San Diego to pay for his legal fees; the city refused. In return, the city voted to sue Filner.Filner pleaded guilty to three criminal counts (one felony false imprisonment count and two misdemeanor battery charges) and faced up to five years in prison. He reached a plea deal and was given three months of house arrest, three years of probation, and loss of some of his mayoral pension.

Key Takeaway: This section uses the term "liability" often. Filner's case illustrates exactly what this may mean: lawyer fees that supervisors must take on themselves, and potential prison sentences if they are found guilty of their allegations.
