2022 California and Federal Employment Poster

You must post a compliant Employment Poster in a conspicuous place in the workplace where all employees and applicants can see it. The poster also must include information about your workers’ compensation benefits, payday schedule and emergency contacts. You may need to order several to ensure that your business, branches and satellite offices are displaying the poster according to the law. Failure to comply can result in severe penalties and fines by the state of California. If any of your company’s workers are Spanish-speaking, you will need to order the Spanish version.

Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

HAVE YOU MET YOUR TRAINING DEADLINES?

California law requires employers with five or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees every two years. Mandatory training for supervisors and nonsupervisory employees must also take place within six months of hire or promotion and again every two years.

This includes:

  • California supervisors (two hours) and nonsupervisory employees (one hour)
  • Out-of-state supervisors who manage California employees
  • Remote employees interacting with California employees
  • Newly hired or promoted employees (within six months)
  • (As of January 1, 2021) Seasonal and temp employees you hire directly to work for less than six months — within 30 calendar days after their hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first.
  • If you trained staff in 2019, they are due for refresher training by January 1, 2022.

Important note regarding California’s training threshold of five or more employees: When counting employees to determine if you’re required to provide harassment prevention training, be sure to count staff located outside of California, part-time and temporary direct hires, independent contractors, as well as unpaid interns and volunteers.
