calchamber podcast.jpgEpisode 117: What Employers Are Asking Right Now
(Source: CalChamber)
In this episode of The Workplace podcast, CalChamber Executive Vice President and General Counsel Erika Frank and employment law expert Jennifer Shaw discuss some of the most common questions employers have been asking recently, including internet reimbursements for remote workers, providing paid sick leave for employees quarantining from recent travel, time keeping, and more. More details.


Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Available for Discounted Price through the Oceanside Chamber
California law requires all employers with five or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees by January 1, 2021, and then every two years. This mandatory training for supervisors (two hours) and nonsupervisory employees (one hour) must also take place within six months of hire or promotion and again every two years. (Taking these individual-learner courses in a group setting will not satisfy the state requirements.) The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has partnered with CalChamber to offer a 20% discount for online Employee Harassment Prevention Training, and online Manager/Supervisor Harassment Prevention Training. CalChamber makes it easy to train all your employees and managers to meet your California compliance obligations. More details.
