Barranti Law Group

Harassment training for supervisors has always been a good idea; now it is required by law for all California employers with 50 or more employees but it is highly recommended for all business owners and all employees, regardless of size.

Additionally, effective April 1, 2016 employers with 5 or more employees must have a written policy against harassment which must meet certain requirements including employer’s affirmative duty to prevent harassment and discrimination and a written complaint process.

This dynamic workshop is a FREE way to provide the information you need to know, teaching you essential management skills while discussing the legally required harassment related topics.


The presenters
Nancy Arrouzet, HR Consultant and Greta Minnis, PHR, SHRM-CP Business Partner
