On August 30th, 2019, SB 778 was Approved by Governor Newsom. California SB 778 changed the sexual harassment training deadline requirements that would have taken effect on January 1, 2020. This bill will now require an employer with 5 or more employees to provide the above-described training and education by January 1, 2021, and thereafter once every 2 years. The bill would require new nonsupervisory employees to be provided the training within 6 months of hire and new supervisory employees to be provided the training within 6 months of the assumption of a supervisory position. The bill would also specify that an employer who has provided this training and education in 2019 is not required to provide it again until 2 years thereafter. The bill would make other related changes to those provisions requiring sexual harassment training.
