At The Fromholz Firm, we provide workplace training – for managers or employees – on a variety of topics, including harassment prevention, conducting workplace investigations, and managing within the law. We provide AB1825 compliant training for supervisors and managers. Our firm also trains internal investigators how to perform an investigation. Training can be as little as two hours or as long as one week and always is tailored to the needs of our client.
Training for employment law compliance
Our lawyers work one-on-one with individual executives and employees, or with large corporate groups, to provide intelligent training that increases productivity and reduces workplace conflict. We have extensive experience coaching managers on how to best comply with workplace policies and the law.
We train workers to comply with employment laws by addressing the following areas:
- Managing within the law — Managers are called upon to make hiring decisions, manage employee performance, appropriately respond to workplace absences and job limitations, and respond to workplace complaints. We train managers to identify and handle the potential issues in these areas so that they act in compliance with the law and workplace policy.
- Harassment prevention — Harassment of any kind cannot be tolerated in the workplace. Employees, managers, etc., must be trained to identify subtle sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Additionally, all employees should be aware of the repercussions of engaging in any form of workplace harassment.
- Social media — Your company may want to adopt a strict stance on where and when social media is acceptable at work. Certain social media posts can cross the line into what may constitute harassment, sexual or otherwise, and can lead to workplace disputes and liability.
Proper workplace training can help your company avoid disputes and needless litigation.
1825 compliant training for supervisors and managers
Passed in 2005, California’s AB 1825 requires employers to provide, every two years, a minimum of 2 hours of effective training to employees on the prevention of discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. Our lawyers are well-versed in AB1825, California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and we can help ensure your managers and supervisors receive the right training.
