Principal for a Day in San Dimas and La Verne provides an opportunity for business and community leaders to come together in an effort to increase awareness of the importance of education while offering a first-hand perspective of what is happening in our schools today.

This program will allow us the opportunity to learn and then develop possible on-going partnerships and provide an insight into the successes and challenges of today’s local schools, which in turn, will challenge us to explore and provide opportunities for workforce development training demands needed for future needs.

Business Tip of the Month
Each month we will share a business tip to help you and your business thrive.

Effective January 1, 2019, California employers with 5 or more employees (including those located out of state) are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees before January 1, 2020. The minimum count of "5" employees includes seasonal and temporary hires as well as independent contractors.

That's 2 hours of sexual harassment prevention training to California supervisors (and to out-of-state supervisors of California employees), and 1 hour of such training to non-supervisory employees in California. Training must take place within 6 months of hire or promotion and every 2 years thereafter. To comply with the January 1, 2020 deadline, all employees must be trained during the 2019 calendar year. You will receive 20% off after checkout when you sign up. 

Taking these individual-learner courses in a group setting will not satisfy the state requirements.

Note: The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) takes the position that employees, including supervisors, who were trained in 2018 or before will need to be retrained again in 2019.  

BEST COURSE OF ACTION

CalChamber makes it easy to effectively train employees and meet your California compliance obligations. Since harassment is a major source of litigation in California, CalChamber recommends that employers with fewer than 5 employees also train every employee.

Start-and-Stop Convenience

Learners can take their individual, self-paced training

  • In English or Spanish (learner decides)
