Effective April 1, 2016, new regulations issued by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) apply to employers subject to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). To aid California-based employers, and entities that have a legal footprint in California, Kantola Training Solutions has posted What You Need to Know About California’s New DFEH Regulations, as well some of the required resources.
“While these new regulations do not alter existing law, they were created to clarify already existing obligations of employers to take reasonable steps to prevent and promptly correct harassment or discrimination in the workplace,” said Kantola’s CEO Allen Noren. “To help accelerate California entities in complying, we have made resources available, such as a downloadable brochure-equivalent they can distribute to managers, supervisors, and employees.”
Kantola has also posted a 2016 DFEH Compliance Checklist that helps businesses and organizations comply with these new regulations.
COMPLIANCE TRAINING RESOURCES
In California, to meet the requirements for AB 1825, AB 2053 and SB 292, training is mandatory for supervisory personnel in companies with 50 or more employees. This training must last a minimum of two hours. Kantola provides eLearning and video training that helps employers meet state compliance guidelines. These courses include stand-alone two-hour eLearning that fulfills State requirements, video training that can be used as part of a two-hour training led by a qualified trainer to meet requirements, and training for all non-supervisory employees. It also includes a free Learning Management System that tracks and records employee responses.
