Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training for Managers, Supervisors and Leads

This class will inform you of the County Policies, your responsibilities under the law, the potential liability for the organization and for yourself as a manager, supervisor or lead or as someone within a job code that ALLOWS FOR managing, supervising, or leading whether or not you currently do have those duties. The training includes guidelines on how to respond to a notice or a complaint of sexual harassment/discrimination, steps to appropriately respond, how to prevent, recognize, and correct sexual harassment/discrimination. The primary duty of preventing and correcting sexual harassment and discrimination is the responsibility of managers, supervisors and leads. In accordance with California Government Code, Managers, Supervisors and leads are required to attend to Sexual Harassment Prevention Training every two years, and newly appointed managers, supervisors, and leads are required to take this class within 6 months of hire or appointment.
