Unfortunately, 2017 will most likely be remembered as the Year of Sexual Harassment. Notwithstanding that AB 1825 mandated harassment prevention training in California in 2004, the statute was amended to require training on bullying and abusive conduct in 2015 (AB 2053), and recently to require training in 2018 on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation (SB 396), sexual harassment continues to permeate the work place. Given the profound impact sexual harassment has on individuals and workplaces, it is time for change.
As a new year begins, this is an excellent time for employers to reassess their sexual harassment prevention policies and training ~ not only to ensure that they are legally complaint but also effective and embraced by everyone. It is also an excellent time to reaffirm your company’s commitment to maintaining a workplace free of sexual harassment (as well as any other harassment and discrimination) where everyone feels safe and respected and understands that retaliation is unlawful.
