ATTENTION Dentists (including all specialties) and all members of the dental team (dental hygienists, assistants), including the business and office staff: California law requires all employers of 5 or more employees to provide training to its supervisory and nonsupervisory employees on sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention. Every two years, nonsupervisory employees must receive at least one hour of training and supervisory employees must receive at least two hours of training.

Wed, March 27, 2024 ‘Live’ CE Webinar
Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
Employees 4pm-5pm PST 1 CEU core
Employers/Manager 4pm-6pm PST 2 CEU core
CE Speaker: Attorney-at-Law Julia Goldman, The Goldman Law Firm
California law requires that employers with 5 employees or more, receive training on sexual harassment and abusive conduct in the workplace. The purpose of the course is to educate and remind employees and employers how to identify, remediate and prevent unlawful sexual harassment and abusive conduct.
The course shall also discuss remedies available to sexual harassment victims. In order to determine if this training is mandatory for your office, calculate the full-time employees, part-time employees, temps, doctors, employees on a leave of absence and any other individual who is regularly paid through payroll, (e.g., children, cleaning personnel, etc.).
Employees are to receive the training within six months of hire or promotion, (from non-supervisory position to supervisory position), and must undergo the same training every two (2) years thereafter. Temporary employees must receive the training within 30 calendar days or 100 hours worked, whichever occurs first. This is a two-hour training; both supervisory and non-supervisory staff shall attend the first hour and only supervisory staff are required to attend the second hour.
This training offers several benefits.
1) attendees shall comply with California’s mandatory sexual harassment prevention training requirement.
2) Harbor Dental Society shall offer continuing education credit for completion of the training.
3) Julia as your trainer is an attorney whose law firm specializes in representing dentists and specialists, therefore she is in a unique position to incorporate case-studies that are directly applicable to the dental office environment and provide training that will assist employers to meet their legal obligations to create a respectful and safe workplaces.
Finally, California law provides that employers must pay their staff for their attendance. The first hour of this training (which both supervisory and non-supervisory staff must attend) concludes by 5:00 pm PST in an effort to avoid paying non-supervisory staff at an overtime rate for their attendance.
Note: There will be a 5 minute break for non-supervisory staff to jump off the 'live' CE webinar to continue the training for the Employer and Supervisors who will stay on until 6:05pm PST.
