Under a law inspired by the #MeToo movement, more California small businesses — including those in the rental housing industry — will be required to conduct training to prevent sexual harassment.

SB 1343 by state Sen. Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, will expand the training requirements to businesses with as few as five employees, including temporary and seasonal workers. Until now, sexual harassment-prevention training has been required for businesses of 50 employees or more and was mandated only for supervisors.

“Millions of California’s most vulnerable workers are not being informed of their rights and protections nor trained on how to detect work-inappropriate behaviors and how to report those behaviors,” Mitchell said, according to a bill analysis. “In order for an adequate culture shift to take place around this issue, all employees need to feel confident that they are adequately protected by their employers policies and procedures when it comes to safeguarding against sexual harassment.”

The expanded requirements include at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training for all supervisory employees and at least one hour of sexual harassment training to all workers in non-supervisory roles. Moreover, training must be provided within six months of the employee being appointed to his or her position and then once every two years. Training for affected employees must happen by Jan. 1, 2020. If training occurs in 2019, it doesn’t need to be repeated before the 2020 deadline.

Starting Jan. 1, 2020, seasonal and temporary employees must be provided with the training within 30 calendar days of hire or 100 hours worked, whichever is first.
