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

Due to the easing of government-imposed COVID-19 restrictions, the biennial "in-person" sexual violence and harassment prevention training that janitorial employers must provide to their non-supervisory employees, may now be conducted in a manner that protects the health, safety and welfare of all participants. Consequently, the Labor Commissioner’s Office is lifting the suspension of enforcement of the "in-person" training requirements, established by AB 547 (2019). Effective January 1, 2023, janitorial employers must begin compliance with these training requirements once the list of qualified organizations is posted on this website. Additional details will be provided in the coming weeks.

Qualified Organization Application

The Labor Commissioner’s Office will be accepting applications for those interested in providing the Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention Training for property service workers as required under Labor Code section 1429.5. The deadline to apply shall be posted in the coming weeks. If interested, please go to the Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention Training page for more information.
