Sexual Harassment Awareness for Supervisors
What sexual harassment is?
Event Description

Presented by Rita Sever


Supervisors must be familiar with harassment laws and prevention techniques. An employer is strictly liable for the harassing actions of its supervisors as well as non-supervising co-workers if it knew or should have known of the conduct and failed to take immediate corrective action. In addition, a supervisor who commits harassment against an employee can be personally liable for his or her own actions. This session complies with California AB 1825 law, which states that all organizations with 50 or more employees must train all supervisors in sexual harassment every two years, and that new supervisors must be trained within 6 months of hire. The definition of supervisor in the law is broad and includes those who oversee the work of another. This interactive workshop will include: 

  • a segment on understanding our own comfort level with this issue to be better prepared to respond if and when an allegation arises 
  • an overview of what sexual harassment is 
  • a review of methods to prevent sexual harassment and maintain a positive work environment 
  • information on how to handle sexual harassment complaints
