California: Janitorial industry employers must begin offering sexual violence and harassment training to employees
January 1, 2020
On September 15, 2016, Gov. Brown signed the Property Service Worker Protection Act that creates sexual violence and harassment training requirements for the janitorial industry. Starting immediately, covered employers must keep certain records for three years.
Beginning July 1, 2018, covered employers will be required to register each year with the California Division of Labor Standards and provide employees with a sexual harassment pamphlet published by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing ((Pamphlet DFEH-185)).
By January 1, 2020, covered employers must have implemented a qualifying sexual violence and harassment training program.
