Former Assembly Member and bill author Sarah Reyes will join Anderson-davis, Inc.'s president for first public hearings about bill for supervisory employee harassment training.

California employers will get their first opportunity to give feedback on the regulations around AB 1825 at two public hearings presented by the Fair Employment Housing Commission. Stephen Anderson, president of Anderson-davis, Inc., and former Assembly Member and bill author Sarah Reyes will each present on the topic. Mr. Anderson will discuss how employers unintentionally set up their supervisors for failure when assigning them with the task of creating and maintaining a harassment-free and respectful workplace

The Commission will hold two public hearings about these regulations, and subject matter experts will be on hand to speak:

February 1, 2006, 1 p.m. at the Hiram Johnson State Office Building, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, in the basement auditorium.

February 10, 2006, 10 a.m. at the Ronald Reagan State Office Building, 300 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, in the ground floor auditorium.

The bill, which took effect in January 2005, requires employers of 50 or more to provide at least two hours of classroom or other training to supervisory employees on the prevention of sexual harassment, discrimination or retaliation.

This will be the first opportunity for California employers to give their feedback on the regulations around AB 1825. Mr. Anderson will speak about the mistakes that are commonly made by organization when supervisors are not properly trained on how to handle behaviors that violate an organization's harassment policy.

Knowing how to handle situations that most frequently occur in the workplace is essential in maintaining a harassment-free work environment. Employer's sexual/non-harassment policies make supervisors responsible for monitoring their workplace and responding appropriately if they receive a complaint. The supervisors must know how to effectively prevent/stop harassment in their workplace. Nevertheless, many employers do not provide their supervisors with the information and training they need to identify prohibited behavior, especially if a complaint has not been received. In addition, supervisors are not trained on how to respond appropriately if a complainant says, "do nothing."
