Training is no longer optional. Some employee training is mandated by California law. Other training is absolutely required to minimize employment claims and the high cost of defending them. In some cases effective training and documentation can actually prevent claims from ever being made.
Our training options are presented by energetic trainers in live, on-site sessions. They are interactive and designed to do more than simply transfer information. They are designed to inspire employees to achieve better results.
Harassment Prevention Training
Each high-energy training is customized to your organization by incorporating your internal harassment policy and processes along with elements of your specific industry. All trainings exceed California’s specific training requirements. We offer the training in three different forms.
All Employee Harassment Prevention Training
This newly created training is designed to effectively train both supervisory and nonsupervisory employees in one, two-hour session. The first hour will focus on the mandated requirements for all employees, then the nonsupervisory employees will be excused, and the second hour will fulfill the supervisory requirements under California law.
Supervisory Employee Harassment Prevention Training
Unlike the training described above, this training is provided entirely to supervisory employees. It is two-hours in duration and meets California’s specific training requirements. The training covers documentation and communication strategies for supervisory employees and highlights the responsibility and liability supervisory employees have in their positions.
Nonsupervisory Employee Harassment Prevention Training
This training is designed to address the responsibilities of all nonsupervisory employees. It is one hour in duration and it meets California’s specific training requirements. It focuses on the legal definition of harassment in the workplace and reviews appropriate workplace behavior.
Supervisory Training Series
This training series includes up to twelve training sessions for supervisory roles. These sessions are intended to assist in the professional development of your supervisors so that over time, they gain confidence and proficiency in handling the day-to-day needs of the company and the employees they supervise. This series promotes team-building, communications and policy compliance for the supervisors and their teams, while also supporting HR.
Managing ADA and Medical Issues Training
This training is designed to give manager, supervisors and human resource professionals with the knowledge and tools to effectively handle employee medical issues and accommodations under the ADA and FEHA. When supervisors and management know how to properly handle medical issues, the organization’s exposure to employment claims drops dramatically.
Wage and Hour Training
This training is customized to the client’s specific wage and hour practices and designed to ensure that employees comply with both the client’s desired practices and the law. Conducting the training and having the records of it are powerful in blocking wage and hour class actions and discouraging plaintiff’s attorneys from pursuing claims.
Custom Management & Employee Training
We develop custom training on any HR or employment law topics desired by the client. These are designed with the intended goal of educating and empowering your management team to better perform their leadership duties in an effective and compliant manner. These trainings can be customized in both length, format and topic areas. They can be a great way to communicate with and energize employees that are not possible by handling the training internally.
Unconscious Bias Training
Our training sessions are on-site, live, interactive, and devised to engage your employees in the material. Training is designed to be an effective and proactive solution that not only educates your employees, but also creates an atmosphere of mutual respect and awareness that minimizes discrimination claims. The goal is for them to come away with an understanding of how unconscious bias can affect their actions and decisions, and to begin to recognize and apply their learning to address their own biases so that they can interact in a more sensitive manner when faced with diversity in the workplace.
