COVID-19 Update: Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention Training for Janitorial Service Providers

Due to COVID-19, the biennial “in-person” sexual violence and harassment prevention training that janitorial employers must provide cannot be conducted in a manner that protects the health, safety and welfare of all participants. Consequently, the Labor Commissioner’s Office will suspend enforcement of the “in-person” training requirements, including the additional requirements related to such training established by AB 547 (2019), and instead require employers to comply with Government Code section 12950.1, which may be done by providing online trainings to all janitorial workers and supervisors made available through the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) website beginning January 1, 2021. More information on suspended enforcement of the “in-person” training requirements can be found at AB 547 final proposal.

This website will be updated as control of COVID-19 safely allows “in-person” sexual violence and harassment prevention training to resume.

Entertainment Industry Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements

Applicants for entertainment work permits for minors between the ages of 14 and 17 must also complete sexual harassment prevention training before obtaining a minor’s entertainment work permit.
