Workplace Compliance: Health Check Analysis

In 2008, a harassment case resulted in an $18 million verdict against a large California company.

Is Your Company at Legal Risk?

It is a fact that when the economy hits a downturn, employee lawsuits increase substantially (as much as 20% per the EEOC).

For companies in California with more than 50 employees, 2009 is a compliance-training year.

Why? In 2005, California's AB1825 became law.

This law requires all managers/supervisors to take a two-hour training program every two years to prevent illegal sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation. It also requires all new managers/supervisors to take this same training within six months of their hire or promotion date. (CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 12940-12951).

Who knows? Taking 5 minutes to complete this confidential and complimentary AB1825 Compliance Health Check could save you $18 million.
