Sexual Harassment Compliance Training

Stop Harassment in Our Workplace

Stop Harassment in our Workplace - CA AB 1825 edition - Staff TrainingIt is recommended that companies with over 50 employees provide their employees with sexual harassment training every two years.  At a minimum you should be training your supervisors, but it is wise to train everyone.

Humanist Learning Systems offers sexual harassment  training that will not only satisfy your compliance requirements but help you do so in a way that truly empowers your employees.

This is not your standard harassment training that covers the law and little else. Our courses provide all the legally required content regarding harassment/discrimination plus additional training on how to stop harassment using behavioral management techniques. Harassment is a behavioral problem and to tackle it successfully, you need to take a behavioral approach.

Prevention of Sexual Harassment Training Best Practices

New employees should receive prevention of sexual harassment (POSH) training within 6 months of hire and every 2 years thereafter. It is best to include this training as part of your new hire orientation.

Additionally, it is important that the training program be facilitated so that employees have the ability to ask questions and receive feedback.

It also includes information on both AB 1825, AB 2053, SB 396 & SB1343 changes to CA Law. As of January 2015, sexual harassment training should now include specific information on how to prevent abusive behavior in the workplace and not just cover the laws prohibiting harassment and discrimination in the workplace (per CA AB 2053 requirement).

And, as of Jan 2018, sexual harassment training must also now include information about harassment based on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.  (SB 396)

As of Jan 2020 – an employer having five or more employees shall provide at least two hours of classroom or other effective interactive training and education regarding sexual harassment to all supervisory employees and at least one hour of classroom or other effective interactive training and education regarding sexual harassment to all nonsupervisory employees in California within six months of their assumption of a position. (SB1343)

Which basically means – even small employers – need to provide this training. The good news is – my training is online, includes all the required course content and you pay per person as needed.

Humanist Learning Systems can provide in person or online training. Our online training is facilitated and will satisfy even California training requirements.  Because our programs focus not just on the law but how to use science to stop unwanted abusive behavior, we are compliant with the new training requirements adopted by California.

Even if you already provide in person training, you can use our online system to provide catch up training to those unable to attend the live sessions.

About the Instructor:

jenbridgewebJennifer Hancock is a mom, author of several books and founder of Humanist Learning Systems. She is considered one of the top speakers and writers in the world of Humanism today. Her insights on how to combine philosophy and science to help solve our problems more effectively have helped countless people all over the world.

Jennifer’s approach to stopping bullying and harassment is unique. She specializes in teaching a behavioral approach to harassment problems. Specifically focusing on how unwanted behaviors are extinguished. There is more than 70 years of research on how to extinguish unwanted behavior and what is known has a direct impact on why harassment and bullying are so hard to stop and why attempts to stop it result in retaliation. Retaliation is predicted to occur in the behavioral model and it’s time we start taking that into account in our approaches to making it stop. Harassment is a behavioral problem and it requires a behavioral approach to stop.


It is important for employers to document that they have trained their employees on the law and to not harass or discriminate against others in the workplace.

We provide you with a certification and documentation showing that your staff spent the requirement amount of time on the course, that they accessed all the course material and that they learned the required material as evidenced by their passing the final exam.

You will receive full documentation of your training for your records.
