Western Growers Expands Human Resources Training to Local Community
Tuesday, August 29, 2017
In an effort to assist employers in staying in compliance with state regulations, Western Growers (WG) has expanded its Harassment, Discrimination and Abusive Conduct Prevention Training to all businesses involved with the Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce. Previously, the training was only available to WG members.
California state law mandates that employees who perform supervisory functions in a company with 50 or more employees participate in sexual harassment training within six months of taking the position and every two years thereafter. The WG Harassment, Discrimination, & Abusive Conduct Prevention Training will detail the important elements of carefully and appropriately handling sexual harassment issues and complaints. Using case studies and group discussions, this AB 1825 and AB 2053 compliant workshop explores the consequences of sexual harassment on the individual and the organization.
The workshop will review the legal definitions of sexual harassment and employment discrimination; discuss the negative impact of abusive conduct in the workplace and management’s legal obligations when it comes to dealing with these issues; and teach participants how to appropriately handle sexual harassment complaints.
The training will be held on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Western Growers headquarters on 15525 Sand Canyon Ave., Phoenix Conference Room, Irvine, CA 92618.
To register, visit the WG Harassment, Discrimination, & Abusive Conduct Prevention Training webpage.
For questions on the training, contact Adriana Robles at (949) 885-2297.
