|Update Applicable to:
|All employers with at least 1 covered worker as defined in the law
|Biannual – From January 1 through June 30 of every year or from July 1 through December 31
The Labor Commissioner’s Office resumed the implementation of the Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention Training for Janitorial Service Providers, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What are the details?
- Because the law mandates that the training must be done in person, this was not possible due to the restrictions enacted in California.
- Now that the restrictions have been lifted (since February 28, 2023), training “in person” as established in the law can resume.
- In person training resumed on January 1, 2024.
- The list of qualified organizations is posted on this website as of January 1, 2024.
- Plan to resume the mandated training to avoid the law’s established non-compliance penalties.
- Clients who hire non-compliant janitorial employer services are also subjected to penalties, so it is a best practice to visit the above qualified organizations website to search for qualified trainers in your area.
