Supervisors, including all academic appointees, must complete 2 hours of sexual harassment prevention training every 2 years. New supervisors at the University of California must complete 2 hours of training within 3 months of assuming supervisory responsibilities. This requirement is based on Assembly Bill 1825, which became law on Jan. 1, 2005.
Supervisors who need to fulfill the state requirement can use either one of the following methods:
Attend a classroom training: UC Learning Center, a service of Staff Education & Development, offers Sexual Harassment Prevention: The Survival Guide and Sexual Harassment Prevention: Life Theatre’s Survival Guide, both of which satisfy the mandatory sexual harassment training requirement for supervisors under California law. Download the Life Theatre flyer on the OPHD Programs page to learn more.
- Take an online course: An online training program is available for supervisors. Those who have not satisfied the training requirement will receive an e-mail with a personalized link to the program.
You can take the 2-hour course from any computer with access to the Internet, and you can stop and restart at any time. The program also keeps track of who has completed the course. For assistance with the online program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about the content of the training or whether you are required to take it, please contact email@example.com.
For more information, see details about the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) or visit the OPHD website for frequently asked questions about the training requirement, including information about the online program and classroom training registration.
