Curious About AB2053 and Workplace Bullying? Join Us For a Free Webinar!

We’re excited to announce our upcoming webinar “Preventing Abusive Conduct and Bullying in the Workplace: A Policy and Training Roadmap” in collaboration with MYCA Learning! While California training managers are very familiar with AB1825 and the sexual harassment requirements included, not everyone is familiar with the parameters of the new AB2053 law. Don’t miss this webinar where you’ll get all the need-to-know info right from the subject matter experts, Stephen Anderson and Anne Noel.

AB2053 expands on AB1825 to also include “prevention of abusive conduct,” addressing the major issue of workplace bullying. The new law is more encompassing of harassment behavior and goes further to protect employees from abusive behavior.

Preventing abuse and bullying is no longer just an important option for California companies, but a requirement. We’ll make sure you get the information you need to know to ensure your company complies, including:

  • Definitions of abusive conduct
  • The differences between bullying and unlawful harassment 
  • What to include in a comprehensive abusive conduct policy
  • What to include in effective anti-bullying prevention training
  • Personal and employer risks of workplace bullying
  • How to incorporate AB2053 “abusive conduct” content and the two new changes in the law into AB1825 training    

Worried you’ll get pushback from management and employees (“We already took that!”)? We’ll also address those concerns and help you make the case for the updated training.

This webinar is for anyone seeking comprehensive harassment and bullying training and those looking to comply with new California requirements. We know the law can be difficult to navigate; we’re here to help! Join us on Thursday, December 11 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET for this informative session!
