California’s AB 1825 requires “supervisors” to receive two hours of training every two years on the prevention of unlawful harassment, discrimination and retaliation.

To be in compliance, employers need to provide training to everyone who qualifies as a “supervisor.” And, the AB 1825 definition of “supervisor” is very broad. It includes anyone with authority to hire or fire, but it also includes anyone who can assign or direct or discipline other employees.

So, if the boss’ spouse can order employees around, the spouse qualifies as a “supervisor” and needs AB1825 training.

We’d also note that AB 1825 governs both the required content to be included in the training and the trainer’s qualifications. For a thorough discussion, visit LawRoom’s FEHC Regulations for AB 1825 page.

Finally, although AB 1825 does not require non-supervisor employees to be trained, California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act does require employers to take all reasonable steps to prevent harassment. So, if it’s not unreasonable, employers should consider training all employees — both supervisors and non-supervisors.
