Simplify your training requirement and reward supervisors with free coffee.

Regardless of company size, CalChamber recommends harassment prevention training for all supervisors and employees. Just ask any employer blindsided by a workplace harassment lawsuit—the costs are enormous. California requires companies with 50 or more employees to provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisors within six months of hire or promotion, and every two years thereafter. CalChamber's online training makes it easy to educate employees and meet your compliance requirements.
