Santa Clara, CA (PressExposure) March 21, 2009 -- LSA Global, the premier one-stop global training and consulting firm that focuses on achieving measurable business results with a select group of clients, today announced the offering of a new complimentary AB 1825 Health Check to help California companies assess and mitigate legal exposure.
âAt a time when we could all use some help weathering the economic storm, this complimentary health check is a simple and easy tool for clients who want to effectively and efficiently ensure compliance and mitigate risk in 2009,â according to Sheila Ingraham-Russell, Head of the Management Practice for LSA Global. "For companies in California with more than 50 employees, this is a great resource to quickly assess your liability and determine what steps you should take to maintain a harassment-free work environment."
In 2008, a harassment case resulted in an $18 million verdict against a large California company. Do you know if your Company is 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)
